Srinagar: The Private Schools Association of Jammu and Kashmir (PSAJK) on Tuesday felicitated three students from Green Valley schools, who presented papers on “Challenges in the Age of Artificial Intelligence & Machine learning” in the 4th Congregation of Education leaders held at Bangalore last month.

IUST vice chancellor Prof Mushtaq a Siddiqi, commissioner secretary Farooq Ahmad Shah, PSAJK president G N Var and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion. The students from different private schools of the valley also0 participated in the programme.
Speaking on the occasion Prof Siddiqi said the students who presented their papers not only represented their schools but they have represented the whole Kashmir at the national level. “Being a student it is very difficult to present papers on such an issue where there are so many professionals in the area,” he said.
He said the students who want to go for artificial learning should have clear concept of algorithm.
He said the Islamic University is in a process to train teachers in different fields in order to take the education to different levels.
PSAJK president G N Var said that they are facing a lot of challenges in the education system. “The present education system is changing day by day and it is an evolving process. We are happy to see the success of these students who presented their papers in an international conference,” he said.
He said the students should continue their efforts to participate different levels. “Due to lack of platform, our students are facing a lot of challenges in the present education system,” Var said.
“The main aim of the programme was to implement the Mega partnership with IT companies including Microsoft, to help education sector affected due to frequent closure of schools in Kashmir,” the organisers said.
