    VIS was shortlisted for the CBSE-IBM AI Enabled SEWA Programme, ergo, it participated in the Online Training Workshop organised by Ms. Swathi Hari and Mr. Krishna. The programme involved a 3-hour online training on Artificial Intelligence delivered by IBM’s implementation partner, 1M1B Foundation, followed by a 3-hour AI Online Certification course on IBM's online platform. The cornerstone of this Workshop was Artificial Intelligence and its various affiliates like Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Science, Data Visualisation, Natural Language Processing and Computational Science,  amongst others. 
    It also served as an inflection point to talk and debate about the connotations and pitfalls of AI. An open caucus was held on privacy and maintaining solitude in Cyberspace wherein students expressed their opinions   about the notion and how it could be an impediment to the users. All the questions and doubts posed by our enthralled students were  very sincerely answered by the organisers. It was a very stimulating and interactive session.
