The second day of Cognizance, the annual tech-fest of IIT Roorkee witnessed exciting events like Techzibition, Product World, Quizzotica, MUN, and departmental events. Cognizance’s exhibition series presented ‘Nino’- an Intelligent Humanoid Robot. Nino is a humanoid that can talk, walk, dance, sing, and play with its innate intelligence. It is built by Sirena Technologies, an emerging robotics company focused on delivering new, world-class products to the market.
After two years of the pandemic, Cognizance had finally managed to arrange an offline event, Techzibition, that had allowed enthusiastic students to present their scientific innovations at an extraordinary exhibition with a prize worth of INR 1.75 lakhs.
