Prof. V Sridhar’s book, ‘Data Centric Living: Algorithms, Digitization and Regulation’ released

‘Data Centric Living: Algorithms, Digitization and Regulation’ is an interesting book as it explores how data about our everyday online behaviour are collected and how they are processed in various ways by algorithms powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). The book investigates the socioeconomic effects of these technologies and the evolving regulatory landscape that is aiming to nurture the positive effects of these technology evolutions while at the same time curbing possible negative practices. The book was edited by Prof. V Sridhar and published by Routledge. According to him, the book is unique as many faculty members including Prof. Janaki Srinivasan, Prof. Amit Prakash, Prof. TK Srikanth, Prof. Jaya Sreevalsan Nair, Prof. Sachit Rao, Prof. Shrisha Rao, and an equal number of PhD scholars contributed to different chapters of the book.  The book was released by our Director, Prof. Debabrata Das at the Board Room in the presence of faculty members and staff.
