Indian Institute of Science to Set Up New AI/ML Centre

The Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore (IISc), in collaboration with a private player, announced it would establish a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) centre at the IISc campus. Spread across approximately 140,000 square feet, the centre will offer Bachelor’s, Master’s, and short-term courses in areas AI/ML, deep learning, fintech, reinforcement learning, image processing, and computer vision.

The centre will also promote research and innovation in AI/ML and develop the talent pool from across the country to provide cutting-edge solutions to meet the industry’s emerging and future requirements. According to a statement, as IISc continues to deliver on its mandate to provide advanced scientific and technological research and education, its partnerships with forward-thinking institutions will help it scale up substantially and position India as a deep tech innovation hub.

As per a recent report, the global AI market size is expected to gain momentum and reach US$360.36 billion by 2028 while exhibiting a CAGR of 33.6% between 2021 to 2028. AI has become immensely popular, and industries across the globe are rapidly incorporating it into their processes to improve business operations and customer experience. The Indian government is developing and implementing several AI-driven initiatives in education, healthcare, agriculture, and finance. Educational institutes and government agencies are launching centres and offering courses in emerging technology to help build a skilled workforce.

For instance, earlier this year, India’s Ministry of Finance entered a strategic partnership with a tech giant to build a Centre of Excellence in AI and emerging technologies at the Arun Jaitley National Institute of Financial Management (AJNIFM). The centre will serve as a central body for research, AI scenario envisioning, and technology-led innovation. The two sides would jointly explore use cases of emerging technologies in finance and related areas, across central and state ministries and public sector enterprises. Also, public sector officials would be trained on the application of emerging technologies in finance management to address potential risks like money laundering, the use of machine learning models for decision making, and the role of responsible tech in finance, among others. As OpenGov Asia had reported, the collaboration would explore the role of cloud, AI, and emerging technologies in transforming and shaping the future of public finance management in India.

More recently, the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras (IIT-Madras), in association with a semiconductor manufacturing company, is offering a free workshop on AI and high-performance computing technology in semiconductor manufacturing. The workshop is being offered under the “National Supercomputing Mission Industry Talks” series. The workshop is free; however, it is mandatory for interested participants to register before attending the workshop online.

According to a news report, the workshop will be conducted from 27 September to 1 October every day for one hour, and the e-meeting details will be sent only to registered participants. The workshop is open to all interested participants, and the following topics will be covered by industry experts over five days:

  • Modern artificial intelligence in manufacturing.
  • Challenges in adopting machine learning in manufacturing.
  • TensorFlow: The path from model to HW.
  • Minimising copy overhead while sharing GPUs on a single box.
  • Artificial intelligence inference on CPUs.
