Navid Won Best Presenter Award at 2021 IEEE IEMTRONICS Conference in Canada
While the diverse effects of Covid19 soaring, the contribution of the scientists and researchers across the globe has got significant importance to help battle the pandemic by mitigating the spread of the virus and reducing the cases. Navid Bin Ahmed from IUB in collaboration with the department of Computer Science and Engineering of North South University (NSU) has worked to develop device that is expected to help detect the symptom of the virus among the people remotely. A research paper on the performance analysis of the Covid19 symptom detector, which is extracted from the project, has been accepted for presentation in the 2021 IEEE International Conference on IoT, Electronics and Mechatronics (IEMTRONICS) and Navid won the best presenter award, along the co-presenter Nuzhat Arifa Haque from NSU. The research contribution created quite a good resonance among the audience. They won the best presenter title competing with the presenters from 7 other countries in the session. This is Navid’s 10th research publication, and first in collaboration with North South University. The team looks forward to many more such collaboration for academic research in future.
The conference was held virtually in Toronto, Canada from 21-24 April 2021. Other than Navid, co-authors of the paper are Prof Dr. Shahriar Khan from IUB, Prof Dr Shazzad Hosain and Nuzhat Arifa Haque from NSU.
The conference has been adorned with the presence and invited talks of the prominent professors and research scientists from Stanford University, Yale University, Nvidia and some other renowned institutions as well as research organizations from Canada and USA. However, the researchers expect that their initiative may bring in a breakthrough in the remote detection of the symptoms among people.
