Also reputed researchers Dr. Mustafa Bastikodi, Dr. Sudeepa K and Dr. Steven Lawrence Fernandes were present.
The topic of the meeting was - "Research During Lockdown". Some of the key take aways during this workshop were:
• Zooniverse, which sets volunteers to work on subject matters ranging from literature to space exploration, recorded 5 million “classifications” (images processed) last week – four times its usual number. Over the same period, 30,000 new contributors signed up. https://www.zooniverse.org/
• About VTU circular for innovative ideas to curb COVID 19 https://vtu.ac.in/administration-circulars/innovative-ideas-an-research-projects-to-curb-covid-19-issues/
• Online Learning - Learn as much as possible and complete certification courses. Many are offering certain courses for free as a Lockdown feature https://www.edx.org/
• Project students have worked on to track COVID patients. For more ideas on other projects too, visit science.nasa.gov/citizenscience
• To approach companies working on COVID if we have any Data analytics or other solutions to collaborate
• With Lockdown, there would be a Paradigm shift. From conventional offline mode, we will shift to Online Mode. So, there is tremendous potential in this area.
There was a long discussion, followed by Q and A. Later on, the Research Scholars updated their 6 months progress reports.
