“Computational Intelligence: Automate Your World” was the theme of the 2nd International Conference on Information Technology (InCITe-2022), organised by the department of Information Technology, Amity School of Engineering and Technology (ASET) at Amity University, Uttar Pradesh.

The conference, hosted in hybrid mode, saw the participation of more than 60 speakers from more than 18 countries across the globe — including USA’s Carnegie Mellon University, Pennsylvania State University, and University of Texas; UK’s Queen’s University, University of Surrey; New Zealand’s Lincoln University and Australia’s University of Canberra to name a few.


Through a range of keynote speeches, special sessions like CXO Forum and industry sessions, delegates were apprised of the latest technological innovations in the field.

Speaking on “Recent directions and advances in robotics and automation”, Tarek Sobh, 8th president of Lawrence Technological University and distinguished professor and dean of Engineering Emeritus, University of Bridgeport, US, said, “Institutions should develop a culture of creativity and innovation. Multidisciplinary teaching and research have to be promoted to address the problems of the 21st century. We have to ensure that students come out of their comfort zone and work towards resolving the problems of industries and society.” He also highlighted several innovations and breakthroughs in Robotics and Intelligent Sensing and Control.

John M Carroll, director of Penn State’s Center for Human-Computer Interaction and co-director, College of IST’s Collaboration and Innovation Laboratory, Pennsylvania State University, USA, deliberated on “Why should humans trust AI”.

“The transfer of technology and development is currently taking place at a faster pace and the technology is evolving rapidly, whether it is hardware or software applications and services. The youth working in the information technology and computer industries is expected to bring about a revolutionary change. We have to prepare students for future challenges and opportunities so that they can find innovative and research-oriented solutions,” Carroll said.

Speaking about “Research and Innovation: Foundation for Economic Growth” Jugdutt Singh, chief scientist and chief advisor for digital economy to the state government of Sarawak, Malaysia, stressed, “Our aim is to promote digitization in the economy and technology has a special role to play in the industrialization of a country. It is necessary to hold training programmes to assimilate leading technologies such as AI, 5G and machine learning so that the companies and researchers can use them effectively.”

Singh added, “Technology is changing rapidly so it is necessary to keep developing and updating our skills. Cyber Security is a burning topic in today’s scenario and during the pandemic we have seen personal, discreet data and information being misused. Therefore, we must be aware of Cyber Security technologies in order to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from cyber attacks.”

Ashok K. Chauhan, founder president of Amity Education Group, said, “Information Technology has become synonymous with the growth and development of a nation. Those with the greatest and newest technologies are the people who grow and those who are stuck in time are left behind. In the changing geopolitical scenario of the world, the importance of information technology has increased and we will need more modern equipments, machines and technologies in the near future. Research and innovation have always been a major focus area at Amity and this international conference is another step towards making India a super power as India has the most skilled and talented human resource.”

Sharing his views on the occasion, Abhay Bansal, joint head, Amity School of Engineering & Technology, Amity University, Uttar Pradesh, said, “Through AI & Computational Intelligence, technology has enabled us to become more self-reliant and sufficient. It has indeed been an honour to host leading scientists, distinguished academicians and industry experts from across the globe for this two-day international summit. It has been a great experience and the conference will act as a powerful lighthouse for all of us who seek knowledge and aspire to do something real and prolific in the field of Information Technology.”
