= Basics of Autoencoders
Speaker: Ashok Govindarajan

I would be talking about the need for autoencoders and what type of problems will it solve. It will be followed by analyzing a code in Python.

= History and Evolution of Modern Computer Languages
Speaker: Lt. Col. CR Sundar

I will briefly cover the history of various languages starting from the creation of C by Dennis Ritchie in 1972 and go on to various other popular languages such as C++, C#, Python and so on right upto Git written by Linus Torvalds in 2005.

We will deal with the question of why do have a plethora of languages when all that a computer is required to do is "IF-this-is-so-do-this - -ELSE-do-this".

The second question is that these languages are of our generation. Yet, are we all, including the farmer and the mason, able to relate to these languages? If not why not?

Finally what is the Indian solution to this language problem?
