Blockchain is an emerging platform for developing decentralized applications and data storage, over and beyond its role as a platform for cryptocurrencies. The basic tenet of this platform is that it allows one to create a distributed and replicated ledger of events, transactions, and data generated through various IT processes with strong cryptographic guarantees of tamper resistance, immutability, and verifiability. Public blockchain platforms allow us to guarantee these properties with overwhelming probabilities even when untrusted users are participants of distributed applications. Even though, blockchain technology has become popularly known because of its use in the implementation of Cryptocurrencies such as BitCoin, Ethereum, etc., the blockchain platform holds much more promise in various areas such as time stamping, logging of important events in a system, recording transactions, e-governance etc. Many researchers are working on many such use cases such as Key Distribution, registry maintenance, health record management, decentralized authentication, decentralized DNS, etc. Also, corporations such as IBM and Microsoft are developing their own applications in diverse fields such as the Internet of Things (IoT). This workshop invites students, academicians and industry researchers to share innovative research work, projects, and their knowledge base in this burgeoning field of technology.

Deep architectures are playing the most important role in the area of machine learning and are considered as the future technology and anticipated a complete paradigm shift in the area of artificial intelligent by the researchers. It is considered to be one of the most active areas of research in signal, image, vision, and biometrics and comprises of supervised and unsupervised models of approach for detection/ recognition/ classification/ synthesization of objects. With the advent of extraordinary computation power and huge data sets, it is possible to model the most complex processes using deep architectures. With the advent of Deep learning architectures, almost all areas of signal processing have undergone significant changes in their approach. This is primarily because machine learning is at the forefront of solving many problems in computer signal, image, vision and biometrics which were thought to be either unsolvable or highly computationally intensive in the past. One of the key ideas which have facilitated this is the introduction of deep architectures, which form the basis of present-day pattern-based recognition problems. The proposed Two-week course will be comprised of approximately 40 lectures followed by 14 hours’ worth of lab demonstration and hands-on approach is intended to help the participants familiarise themselves with Signal & Image Processing, Computer Vision, Biometrics and Machine Learning and pertains to how all of the approaches can be applied to research problems in real life. The course also covers essentials of machine learning, deep neural networks as well as the other models how they can be applied to solve practical problems in computer vision so that more people become interested in signal processing.
