The session was very interesting as he spoke of the involvement of computer science in every aspect of our lives, including movie making, democratisation of employees, medical facilities and social interactions.

It was a thought-provoking workshop where students asked questions about Big Data management and how careers will change with the quick developments in Artificial Intelligence. The students enjoyed the session as it gave them an opportunity to be acquainted first hand with an expert on the field.
