Lecture series on Knowledge Representation

What: Overview of Knowledge Representation (this is first in a series), by Prof. V.N. Jha

When: Thursday, 4th Sept, 6:30pm

Where: India International Multiversity, Sakal Nagar, Baner Road,

Registration and Fees: This event is free for everyone. There is no need to register.


This is a lecture series organized by Dr. Jha in “Knowledge Representation” using the Nyaya and Navya Nyaya techniques. Navya-Ny?ya developed a sophisticated language and conceptual scheme that allowed it to raise, analyse, and solve problems in logic and epistemology. The lecture series will be an introductory course which will cover the basics and also look at the design principles of Sanskrit, inference schemas used in Nyaya etc.

The idea here is to get a fresh perspective on Knowledge Representation and looking at how these techniques could be used in today’s IT problems ranging from better modeling in databases to better common sense representation systems.
