Vidhya Kamakshi V

Assistant Professor, Center for Computational Engineering & Networking (CEN), Amrita School of Artificial Intelligence, Coimbatore

Qualification: B-Tech
Google Scholar Profile
Research Interest: Explainable AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision


Vidhya Kamakshi V serves as an Assistant Professor at CEN, Department of AI since August 2023. Prior to joining Amrita, She did her PhD at Indian Institute of Technology Ropar under the guidance of Dr. Narayanan C Krishnan, who is currently the HoD Data Science at Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad. My research focussed on explaining the working mechanism of accurate deep models which are black boxes through the lens of image sub-regions called concepts. AI being pervasive, I hope to expand my horizons to specific applications to tackle ground-level challenges.
