Research in AI
During his journey, Dr. Suyanto shared that he focused on research in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), with sub-fields: Machine Learning (ML) and Swarm Intelligence (SI). His interest in this field has been felt since he was sitting in the 6th semester of his Bachelor Program, exactly 25 years ago.
“I was interested in AI because I think AI allows computers to be taught to do various jobs with the same (even better) results than humans. Today and in the future, AI has and will play an important role in digital transformation in all fields. More specifically, I am currently focusing on research in the SI sub-field because in the future SI will play an important role in optimizing and automating machine learning processes in AI and ML”, Dr. Suyanto said.
From this achievement, Dr. Suyanto expressed his gratitude to all parties who have supported him in implementing the Three Pillars of Higher Education, especially in the field of research, so that he could achieve this achievement.
“I’m happy to be able to take part at the national and international level. I would like to thank the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology, Telkom Education Foundation, and Telkom University for the supports. Likewise for fellow lecturers at Telkom University, let’s increase strong and broad research collaborations at national and international levels, by strengthening 2T (Teams & Tools) and strengthen 2P (Pull & Push), so that we can continue to provide the best contribution for Telkom University, Indonesia and the world”, he added.
Great job, Dr. Suyanto! We are so proud of you.(IO)***
