Dr. V.B. Aggarwal, Dean Infotech JIMS (Keynote Speaker- TechnoWhiz 2016) in his keynote Speech said that- "Data science forms a subset of big data analytic. Data science means drive hypothesis from raw data. We statically validate the hypothesis, with the certain degree of accuracy. Data science builds a model that filters the large data. This big raw data is divided into 2 parts, 2/3rd of data is used to build the model, 1/3rd is used to test the data. Using this model can bring down 3000 candidates down to 800 candidates. Makes the concept more clearly by taking the examples from the data science department of University of Berkeley, California. They have developed a mechanism to predict earthquake which will send the alert to your smartphone 5 seconds before the earthquake, and helps to predict traffic in the area."

The chief Guest Prof. (Dr.) K.K. Aggarwal (Chief Guest –TechnoWhiz 2016) is the Chancellor of K.R. Mangalam University, Delhi-NCR. He also serves as the Member, Board of Governors, MITS Gwalior.

He started by saying that he has known Dr. V.B Aggarwal since the inception of IP University (1998) and praised him for his guidance. IP University started with 30 colleges, one of them was JIMS. JIMS has kept the pace of academic achievements. He said we are living in the era where if we are not able to get face to face teaching, we can get any information on our mobiles, which gives us the best of the services in every sector. The priority nowadays is to have the power supply and internet connection to have anything and everything from Information Technology.

He also quoted that the young generation can live without fruits, but can’t live without the 3 screens: TV screen, computer screen, and mobile screen. More than 10,000 mobile phones are sold daily in India only. He also discussed Internet of Thing, soon every small machine we use in day-to-day life will have an IP address. Everything which we thought we can’t achieve or is not achievable has been achieved, only because of rapid changes taking place in Information Technology. He said he’ll be happy if computer science would be used by each and every person on the earth rather than only the computer science students. For the first time in the history of civilization, the Turing test has been passed by computers.

He also quoted that 2016 is the year of “Cognitive and Cloud Computing”. He discussed the building blocks required to develop an application, as everybody is looking for the rapid development of the application due to large competition.
