Bhanu Prasad

I am Bhanu Prasad, currently serving as a Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Florida A&M University (FAMU) in Tallahassee, Florida, USA. In the past, I served as the Chairman (Head) of this department. I received Master of Technology and Ph.D. degrees, both in computer science, from Andhra University and Indian Institute of Technology Madras respectively.  In the past, I worked with software companies, Future Software (which became part of Aricent, which is now Altran), Infosys, and Hyperion Solutions Corporation (now part of Oracle). I also served as an Assistant Professor of Computer and Information Sciences at Georgia Southwestern State University. My research interests include: Artificial Intelligence with a special focus on knowledge representation, reasoning, and  intelligent e-commerce; and software engineering. I published around 80 refereed articles, book chapters, or books in computer science. I voluntarily served as a program committee member, reviewer, co-chair, chair, keynote speaker, editorial board member and guest editor for more than 100 international conferences, journals, or books. My teaching interests include AI, operating systems, computer networks, software engineering, theory of computation, etc. My office phone number is: 1-850-412-7359. My personal email address is: bhanupvsr[AT]

I think the following material is useful to the students in computer science: Free video lectures, MIT open course ware, and Computing research repository.

I have been working on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for quite sometime. Does AI replace humans? I often read news on this. For example, Stephen Hawking warned that AI may replace Humans altogether. I will provide a detailed response on this. In the mean time, I would like to see an AI system which, at least, can mimic the intelligence of a typical 5 year old child in all aspects. If you have such information, please let me know.
