The session will include a demonstration of the extreme maths skills of Dr. Amit where he pits himself against computers to complete calculations. After the demo, having more than 10 years of experience in the area, he will elaborate on the fields of Applied Mathematics, Operations Research and Data Analytics to the audience, how they can be used in various industries like Supply Chain, E-Commerce, Transportation, Tourism, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Financial and Telecom Industry and the career opportunities in these fields. This talk will not only help the analytical/scientific community but also the next generation Business Managers to understand and implement these practices in their businesses effectively. This session is primarily aimed at students but anyone interested in watching a live duel between man and machine is welcome to attend.
Dr. Amit Garg pursued his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and his Masters in Industrial Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India with a Ph.D. in Operations Research from Case Western Reserve University, USA. With an exceptional mathematical and computational acumen, he managed to beat the previous World Record holder, Willem Bouman from Netherlands in completing ten mathematical tasks in a record time of 5:45 minutes in 2012 and was awarded the Guinness World Record Holder title in 2014.
Being the first Indian to bag a silver medal at the Mental Calculation World Championship in London, he received immeasurable appreciation not only from his country but from people all around the world.
