Prof. Prabhudha Ganguly

Professor Ganguli, is presently Advisor of VISION-IPR in Mumbai. He obtained his, Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, and completed his Post Doctoral Research in Germany and Canada. He was a Visiting Scientist at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in 1981 before joining Hindustan Lever, Ltd. as a Research Scientist.

His last assignment at HLL involved corporate information risk and security management and knowledge management. He is a qualified and a leading Patent Attorney in India and an expert in IPR and Information Management.

An elected Fellow of the Maharashtra Academy of Sciences, a recipient of the National Science Talent Scholarship (NSTS) and an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellow (Germany), Professor Ganguli has several publications in Chemical Physics, Chemical Processes, Specialty Materials. He is the author of over 30 publications, which include research papers in the field of IPR.

He is Co-Chairman of several advisory committees, task force and is associated with several academic and research institutions.

Professor Ganguli is a member of the International Editorial Board of the IPR Journal "World Patent Information" published by Elsevier Science Limited, UK. His book titled Gearing Up for Patents - The Indian Scenario was published by Universities Press (an associate of Orient Longman in India) in January 1998. His second book titled "Intellectual Property Rights - Unleashing the Knowledge Economy" was released on March 28, 2001, the foreword of which was written by Dr. Kamil Idris, Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

A talk by Shri Mahesh Sharma Founder, Shivganga Ashram, Jhabua

"STORY OF A SILENT TRANSFORMATION AMONG TRIBALS: WHAT ROLE CAN TECHNOLOGY AND IITIANS PLAY?"

A TALK BY SHRI MAHESH SHARMA Founder, Shivganga Ashram, Jhabua

16TH SEPT, FRIDAY, 6:45 PM
LHC 108, IIT DELHI

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Shri Mahesh Sharma is a changemaker and a visionary. Founder of the Shivganga Ashram in the tribal district of Jhabua, he came to Jhabua in 1998, and has transformed the place in the last eighteen years that he has been there. He spent his first five years traveling extensively from village to village and house to house to identify the real problems that people of Jhabua face and to be a part of their community. Then he used culture and tradition of the land to develop a sustainable model for development and to empower the tribals of Jhabua. Today, he still continues to work in Jhabua by being actively involved in the community developmental activities and working towards the betterment of the people of that region.

ABOUT THE TALK

We as IITians are at the forefront of the technological world. How can we contribute to the development of backward regions of our country? What can we do to create change and make an impact? Shri Mahesh Sharma comes to IIT Delhi to address some of these questions, to share his inspiring journey and to talk about what prompted him to work for the people of this region.

Talk by Prof. Pietro Valdastri (University of Leeds, UK)

Title of the talk:“LIFESAVING CAPSULE ROBOTS”

Speaker: Prof. Pietro Valdastri

Affiliation: University of Leeds, UK

Venue: IIA-501 (Bharti Building)

Date: Friday 16 September 2016

Time: 11:00 AM

ABSTRACT OF THE TALK

Capsule robots are meso-scale devices that leverage extreme miniaturization to access and operate in environments that are out of reach for larger robots. In medicine, capsule robots can be designed to enter the human body through natural orifices or small incisions, and to perform endoscopy and surgery while minimizing the invasiveness of the procedure.

The talk will move from capsule robots for gastrointestinal endoscopy toward a new generation of surgical robots and devices, having a relevant reduction in invasiveness as the main driver for innovation. Wireless capsule endoscopy has already been extremely helpful for the diagnosis of diseases in the small intestine. Specific wireless capsule endoscopes have been proposed for colon inspection, but have never reached the diagnostic accuracy of standard colonoscopy. In the first part of the talk, we will discuss enabling technologies that have the potential to transform colonoscopy and gastroscopy. These technologies include magnetic manipulation of capsule endoscopes, water jet propulsion, real-time pose tracking, and intermagnetic force measurement. The second part of the talk will give an overview about the development of novel robotic solutions for single incision robotic surgery. In particular, a novel surgical robotic platform based on local magnetic actuation will be presented as a possible approach to further minimize access trauma. The final part of the talk will introduce an open-source component-based design environment for capsule robots that aims at facilitating researchers in the field in exploring novel concepts and reducing the time to achieve a functional prototype.
