The University of Mumbai (MU) is getting ready to develop its own Artificial Intelligence (AI) policy for the teaching and learning process. The newly appointed vice chancellor (VC), Professor Ravindra Kulkarni, talked about this project as soon as he accepted his position and revealed his goals for the organisation.
Professor Kulkarni stated “Cambridge University has finalised its AI policy, like a few others. With the rapidly changing time, this will be imperative for us too. We shall also look at developing such a policy in a couple of years. Plagiarism will be just a part of it. We will also look at how data processing and teaching-learning methods could be made more effective with the use of AI.”
On its Fort campus, Mumbai University hosted a welcoming ceremony for Professor Kulkarni in the Cowasji Jehangir Convocation Hall. At the same event, Prof. D. T. Shirke, the departing VC and an additional charge of MU received a goodbye tribute. Participants included university administrators, deans from several city colleges, faculty members, and others.
Professor Kulkarni, who previously held the position of pro-vice-chancellor at MU, declared his commitment to addressing the challenges the institution has, the need to raise standards, industrial relations, and faculty development.
Professor Kulkarni quoted, “Students will be the focal point as far as developing technology is concerned as they will emerge as skilled manpower for the important industrial sector. The industrial revolution had far-reaching effects. And as a result, the industry is always changing, and universities also need to adapt to these changes.”
With the aid of industry, Professor Kulkarni emphasised the need of giving students ample opportunities for research on campus. "In the next four years, there will be a lot of changes in the way teachers teach and the way students learn. Teachers need to be competent and it’s necessary to support the teachers and move forward. This will always be my focus,” he declared.
