Vision

Artificial Intelligence is the need of everyday life nowadays. The core part of Artificial Intelligence is Machine Learning. It is the practice to learn from data and extract useful knowledge. Deep Learning is a subfield of Machine Learning, and it is an algorithmic approach inspired by the functionality and structure of the human brain known as Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). Neurons are connected in multiple layers to process the data with a nonlinear approach towards some final output for making decisions e.g., speech recognition, recommendation, prediction, object & face detection, etc. Deep learning is applied to a variety of massive data generating at high velocity called big data.  

The Deep Learning Lab at SPCAI will serve as a core lab for the center and PAF-IAST. It will focus on research and innovation in deep learning tools, techniques, and algorithms. This lab will provide end-to-end data-centric AI-based solutions to organizations, SMEs, and public sector departments.  It will also assist other labs to solve their scientific problems using available computational power and futuristic technologies of deep learning.
