Am I a socially responsible researcher? Pillars and strategies

Research is now becoming a “gap task” that academics often do for their performance rankings and students for the fulfillment of their degree requirements. The question is what needs to be done to make academic researchers—both professors and students—socially responsible researchers. What strategies are required to assist researchers in going beyond this gap task approach…

NUST houses the fastest Supercomputer in Pakistani Academia

Modern day scientific progress, research and discovery is dependent on computational capability. In many fields, large-scale physical experimentation has been replaced by computational modelling and simulation. The computational approaches reduce cost through eliminating the needs for designing several physical prototypes iteratively. Moreover, the development time can be reduced through improving design maturity by building detailed…

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Power Plants

In order to run power plant operations smoothly, power plant faults need to be detected, located and classified quickly. For this, artificial neural network approaches are considered significant tool in related application of power system. Power plants failures can take place due to multiple factors for instance lightning strikes, damage of equipment’s at power generation…

NUST Researcher indigenously developed AI powered HESS Screening system for Diagnosis of Squinty Eyes

Patients who have vision impairment may find it extremely difficult to go about their regular lives. Unfortunately, the number of people in Pakistan affected by vision impairment is staggering; an estimated 21.78 million (Hassan 2019). Such impairments reduce people’s quality of life, which results in a cumulative loss of production and income for the nation….
