Hi! Welcome to Prof G C Nandi's home page.

Prof G C Nandi meeting with the President of India 
at the Presidential palace Nov. 2016
 I am Prof G C Nandi. Currently, working as the senior most Professor and Advisor to the Director for Quality Assurance and Assessment  of  the premier  Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad. Also performed the duties of the DIRECTOR from Jan 2014-April 2014 and July 2016 to May 2017 during the critical phase of transition of the institute. 

I try to motivate my students towards creativity and teach them how to learn! It is a wonderful experience for me to interact with such talented young minds. I teach them various subjects and learn many things from them!
My passion is  to create robots which will interact with us intelligently in a social environment. At IIIT-Allahabad, I have developed a Robotics and Artificial Intelligence laboratory which is considered to be one of the best in our country.I envision one day every household will have one or two robots who will take care of the elderly persons and perform various routine, monotonous and dirty household jobs. Also it will share emotions with us, give us company in old age and take care of our health when our near and dear ones will be away from us in their busy  professional lives. We do intensive research so that it becomes reality someday! 
We have recently  developed a technology for AMAL (Adaptive Modular Active Leg), which is controlled by Biologically Inspired CPG (Central Pattern Generator). It can give maximum comfort to an amputee with minimum cost (approximately US $ 260 as on May, 2017). For details about the technology please see on left side Navigation  "Copies of some Publications for Citation" and copyrighted AMAL manual.

For me robotics is a framework where we can develop many new and sophisticated  technologies and test them  for their real life implementation.
My team (Under graduate students, Masters students, Ph.D scholars ) is currently working in the area of Machine Learning and its application in the area of Robotics.
