This combination of NVIDIA’s leading-edge technology for AI Compute and some of the finest minds in the country from IIT Hyderabad will bring synergy to help find solutions to uniquely Indian challenges, be it enhancing crop yield or safer cities. This will build on the strong AI capabilities IIT Hyderabad has built, including the country’s first B.Tech in AI program,” said Prof. B.S. Murty, IIT Hyderabad Director.

IIT Hyderabad already has an NVIDIA DGX-1TM and NVIDIA DGX-2TM server to empower faculty members and students to solve complex AI challenges. IIT Hyderabad by further deepening its ties with NVIDIA, demonstrates that it is committed to innovating in the field of AI. And NVIDIA is becoming one of the enablers for AI researcher as it has also teamed up with the Government of Telangana to assist in its initiative of becoming the top 25 global AI innovation hubs.
