About NGCT 2018

NGCT Society and UPES Dehradun are committed to Quality Education and Research in India and abroad. Overwhelming success of previous editions of NGCT Conferences, NGCT Society and UPES announces 4th International Conference on Next Generation Computing Technologies, (NGCT’ 2018). Objectives of NGCT’2018 will focus on experimental, theoretical and application aspects of innovations in Computational Intelligence. This Conference aims to create a community of researchers, scholars and experts from academia and industry working on Computational Intelligence and its applications in Informatics, Imaging and Machine Vision, Language Technology, Smart Applications and E-commerce, Networking and High Performance Computing domain and share most recent and latest research findings. Authors across the globe are invited to submit their research proposal/papers which are not simultaneously under consideration with any other journal or conference.

Conference Theme: Computational Intelligence

Can computers be intelligent?

In the mid-1900s, Alan Turing gave much thought to this question. He believed that machines could be created that would mimic the processes of the human brain. More than sixty years later his statements are still visionary and motivating researches to make the computer intelligent.

Computational Intelligence(CI) is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence(AI) and an adaptive mechanism that exhibit an ability to learn or adapt to new situations, to generalize, abstract, discover and associate. Computational Intelligence has five main paradigms, namely artificial neural networks (ANN), evolutionary computation (EC), swarm intelligence (SI), artificial immune systems (AIS), and fuzzy systems (FS). These CI paradigms have been applied successfully to solve complex problem in the field of Robotics, Speech Analysis, Medical Science, Automobiles, Recommendations, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision and many more. Advancement in the computational power and the availability of data; ignited the Computation Intelligence research field.

With spirit of multidisciplinary applications of Computational Intelligence and quest for innovative and promising research contributions, theme of NGCT’2018 has been decided to Computational Intelligence.
