The institute has also announced the launch of Ripple-IIITH PhD and Post Doctoral fellowships for blockchain.

Since then, it has been actively researching different aspects of blockchain such as security, next-gen blockchains, game-theoretic issues, ML over blockchains, e-governance over blockchain, etc.

“KCIS is one of the largest AI research groups in the country. We have also made significant progress with our blockchain CoE since its inception a year ago. Lots of opportunities are available to work in these emerging areas for PhD and Post-Doc aspirants with the top-class faculty in the AI and the Blockchain area. We look forward to attracting them,” said Prof P J Narayanan, Director, IIITH.
