Inside the world of robotics and the switch to technological innovation at Wissenaire ’21
One of the high points of Wissenaire ’21, the annual techno-management fest organised by IIT Bhubaneswar, was the guest lecture series Teknite.
Of the two lectures in Teknite, Mike Radice, managing director of ChartaCloud Robotics, spoke on Digital Humans. Avinash K. Singh, founder of India Future Society, talked about Transhumanism: A Journey from Humanism to Posthumanism.
Here’s what we learnt from the two sessions.
Mike Radice, managing director, ChartaCloud Robotics on Digital Humans:
“The session on Digital Humans helped me to see the possibilities in robotics in a different way. I want to be a part of this. There’s so much learning to do,” said Viraj Kishore, a third-year Electronics and Communications Engineering student of Sastra (Deemed to be University), Tamil Nadu.
"Pretty impressive to pave my path towards the trend of technological growth of our society," said Diyanjali Pareka, a third-year Metallurgical and Material Engineering student of National Institute of Technology, Trichy.
Avinash K. Singh, founder of India Future Society, on Transhumanism-- A Journey from Humanism to Posthumanism:
“This session made me understand that the transhumanist approach is how we make human beings smarter and more capable so that we are the drivers of technological innovation instead of being victims of it in some apocalyptic scenario,” said Srujan Ijjada, a third-year Computer Science Engineering student of Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering, Visakhapatnam.
“The session helped me to clearly understand the necessity of transhumanism in our lives and the future scope in it for the engineers,” said Pavan Preetham, a third-year Metallurgical and Materials Engineering student of National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli.
