'Soft computing still out of reach of villages' [DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India)]
(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) "Although a few major cities in the state have shown considerable improvement in the field of soft computing, its reach at village levels is still at a deprived stage, said the state Governor, Ram Naresh Yadav addressing a national conference on 'Soft Computing' on Friday.
"When compared to other developed nations, we are still moving at much slower pace in this area. These days, soft computing skills are being employed in many areas and the coming years will witness a sea change in computational methodology," the governor added.
Yadav stressed upon the need of taking this relatively new field of computational study to villages for overall development of the region. It is essential that such conventions take place at district, block and village levels too.
It is a field of computer science that tries to find solutions of much complicated problems which involve certain uncertainties and unpredictability. Professor of Computer sciences, Jayant Adhikari said, "Earlier, computer sciences mainly dealt with simpler calculations. Through application of 'Soft Computing' in an algorithm, computer can itself apply certain logic and predict solutions."
"We try to establish an interface between computers and human mind; using tools such genetic algorithms, neural networks and fuzzy logic," the professor said.
The technology has immense scope in the fields of medicine, power generation, biology, management sciences and weather predictions.
At present, scientists and researchers in many parts of the world are trying to minimise the time lag; because in order to make a computer that could predict solutions to complicated problems, we have to feed it with large amount of information and that makes it cumbersome for computer, Adhikari told dna.
Students from various colleges across the country took part in the convention and presented their papers on applications of 'soft computing' in various fields.
