While educational institutions are concerned about the application of ChatGPT in schools and colleges, a recent report in NATURE referred to the creation of research publications with the AI-based chatbot as a co-author. This large language model (LLM) with a  Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) is generating textual information in the form of essays, following statistical patterns of language from an internet-based text database. In this issue of the newsletter, we explored what information ChatGPT generates about IIT Kharagpur and our alumni community.

From which Indian states do most students come to IIT Kharagpur?

IIT Kharagpur is located in the Indian state of West Bengal, and many of the students who attend the institution come from that state. Additionally, IIT Kharagpur also draws a significant number of students from other parts of India, such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra. These states are known for their strong education system, and many students from these states aspire to attend IITs for higher education.

Which are the states where the alumni of IIT Kharagpur live in the USA?

IIT Kharagpur has a large alumni network spread across the globe, including the United States. Many alumni of IIT Kharagpur in the USA live in states such as California, Texas, New York, and Illinois. These states are known to have a high concentration of Indian Americans and also have a strong presence in the technology and engineering industry, which attracts many alumni. Additionally, many alumni also live in other states such as Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Michigan, which also have a strong presence in technology and engineering companies. Some alumni also live in states like Washington, Colorado, Georgia, and North Carolina. It is also worth noting that many alumni move around for their jobs, education, or personal reasons and might not reside in the same state for a long period of time.

What do alumni of IIT Kharagpur in the USA like to eat?

As the alumni of IIT Kharagpur in the USA come from different regions of India and have diverse backgrounds, it's hard to point out a specific food that they like to eat. However, many alumni living in the USA tend to enjoy a mix of traditional Indian food as well as American and international cuisines. Some of the popular Indian food items among them include dal makhani, biryani, and samosas. Many also enjoy tandoori and tikka dishes, as well as street food such as chaat and bhel puri. Some alumni also like to cook traditional Indian food at home. In addition to Indian food, many alumni also enjoy American and international cuisine, such as pizza, burgers, and Chinese food. Some alumni also like to try out new and diverse cuisines and local food options, as it's widely available in the USA.

What do alumni of IIT Kharagpur like to wear at home?

It's hard to say what alumni of IIT Kharagpur specifically like to wear at home as it varies from person to person and it also depends on the cultural background, climate, and personal preference. Some alumni may prefer traditional Indian attire such as kurta-pajama or salwar-kameez while others may prefer western attire such as t-shirts, shorts, and loungewear. They may also prefer to wear comfortable clothing like sweatpants, pajamas, and slippers while they are at home. It ultimately depends on the individual's personal style and comfort level.

What is the neuroscience explanation for IIT Kharagpur alumni being super bright?

It is difficult to make a generalization about the intelligence of a specific group of individuals, such as alumni from a particular institution, as intelligence is a complex trait that is influenced by a variety of factors, including genetics, environment, and culture. That being said, it is known that intelligence is related to the structure and function of the brain. Studies have shown that certain areas of the brain, such as the prefrontal cortex and the parietal cortex, are involved in cognitive processes that are related to intelligence, such as working memory, attention, and problem-solving. It is also known that the brain's plasticity, or ability to change and adapt, plays a role in intelligence. Education, training, and other environmental factors can lead to changes in the brain's structure and function, which can enhance cognitive abilities.

It's possible that the rigorous education and training that students receive at IIT Kharagpur, may have contributed to the brain development and cognitive abilities of its alumni, leading to their success in Silicon Valley. However, other factors such as their work ethic, motivation, and cultural background also play a significant role. It's important to note that intelligence is a multidimensional and complex concept, and there is no single explanation for the success of IIT Kharagpur alumni in Silicon Valley.
