TitleLecture Demonstration on "VideoKen - Applying Machine Learning to support Human Learning"
Details

Dr, KNB Murthy, Vice-Chancellor of PES University and Chairman of BITES, extended a warm welcome to Dr. Manish Gupta and invited him to talk about VideoKen after a brief introduction about Dr. Manish Gupta. About 60 faculty members from PES University, East West Institute of Technology as well as BNM Institute of technology and 60 students from MTech as well as MCA programs of PES University attended the lecture demonstration. Dr. Manish Gupta started his lecture by saying that the rapid changes enabled by technology are making it imperative for virtually every human being to commit to lifelong learning. The growth of online courses has led to the widespread availability of high quality video lectures on practically any topic. However, much of formal learning, in educational institutions as well as corporations, makes inadequate use of these resources, and purely online learning continues to face challenges that limit its effectiveness. In order to improve learning effectiveness, a platform called VideoKen that uses novel techniques to support search and recommendation of educational videos on a given topic has been developed. VideoKen applies machine learning techniques to index videos, inspired by the analogy with text books, by automatically generating a table of contents and a glossary, and to gain insights from the learner's interactions with the videos. VideoKen also supports social learning at multiple levels. It enables faculty to conveniently share their curated video content within and across institutes, thus helping each other as a community by curating specific video clips and sharing with their classmates, friends or the organization at large. The program ended with voteof thanks by Prof. Nitin V Pujari, Chairperson of CSE-PG studies of PES University.
