IIT Madras hosts the first RBCDSAI ‘Web Science Symposium’

Chennai, Feb 25 (UNI) Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras on Monday hosted the first day of the first Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and AI (RBCDSAI) ‘Web Science Symposium,’ in the campus.
The event is slated to be held on 25th & 26th Feb, 2019.
According to the IIT Madras statement, the event is being held jointly with Web Science Trust (WST), an UK-based not-for-profit that supports global development of Web Science.
The WST has established an international network, bringing together world-class research laboratories to support the Web Science Research and education programme. The program comprises lectures by trustees of web science trust and experts from around the country.
Delivering an address on ‘Web Science, AI and Future of the Internet,’ UK, Regius University of Southampton, Professor of Computer Science, and Executive Director, Web Science Institute, Prof. Dame Wendy Hall, said, “Web architecture is a simple set of protocols, that gave rise to complex macro phenomena. Web is the co-creation between humans who put the content and the technology that enables it. The whole thing is designed for
wonderful things but when it goes big, bad things will happen such as cyber bullying and fake news.”
She became a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 2009 UK New Year's Honours list and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in the same year.
Further, Prof Wendy Hall said, ''Web and Web Science have always involved Artificial Intelligence. The Web Services and Social Networks use AI to enhance performance and provide personalised services. The Web scientists use AI to do their research. Some of the important issues involving AI include ‘Will AI make us smarter,’ ‘job losses vs job creation and skills gap,’ and ‘data access issues such as privacy.''
The goal of this symposium is to provide a venue for the Indian web science community to meet and exchange research ideas that could result in collaborations at this symposium and in the future events of this series. This edition of the symposium features lectures by eminent researchers from Indian academia and industry as well as
some of the trustees of the web science trust from the UK and the US.
A research poster session was also held with presentations from research scholars from around
the country, as well as a panel discussion on fostering the web science community in India.
