IEEE Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology College of Engineering Chengannur held its first General Meeting on 27th February 2020. The meeting was marked by the presence of many tech enthusiastic students who were willing to contribute their knowledge and time for the benefits of the special interest group.
The meeting began with a brief introduction on SIGHT by Robin Francis, SIGHT Coordinator IEEE SB CEC. He provided a remarkable curtain-raiser which gave all the relevant information regarding the action plans and missions of SIGHT for the upcoming year. He urged the students the need to focus on projects of practical and humane value. Members were encouraged to come up with projects that have an insight to uplift technically under-represented sections of the Society. Moving more specifically on this topic he ensured training the members could avail from DevCom and RoboCom to equip themselves to practicalize their project ideas. He didn’t forget to communicate a few already decided initiatives like outreach programs, outreaching products by RoboCom with funding via SIGHT, Chatbots in collaboration with IEEE Computer Society, and classes regarding education and hygiene in collaboration with IEEE WIE for the underprivileged communities. SIGHT Ex-Com members were then introduced to the gathering. Finally, the meeting was concluded by once again reminding the members regarding the eligibility criteria for the SIGHT funding projects.
The General Meeting was hopefully dispersed looking forward towards the signature steps the special interest group could attain in the forthcoming year.
