As part of NITI Aayog’s ‘National Strategy For Artificial Intelligence’, a Model International Centre for Transformative Artificial Intelligence (ICTAI) will be set up in collaboration with Intel and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), according to a Press Information Bureau (PIB) release.
“This collaboration is a very exciting beginning where we plan to bring fundamental and applied research, innovation and technology development together to solve important problems facing our nation with potentially transformative effects on society,” Director of TIFR, Sandip Trivedi, remarked on the collaboration.
“Artificial Intelligence is going to be a transformative driver of economic growth and social progress, and Intel’s vision is to drive human-centric AI to benefit humanity in an inclusive manner. In India, through the AI-for-All initiative, we aim to deliver the twin goals of solving hard problems of humanity, and helping India achieve its vision of being a global AI leader, by bringing together a rich ecosystem of research, innovation, technology development and deployment”, the Head of Data Centre Group of Intel India, Nivruti Rai, observed, while expressing pride in being a part of the collaboration.
The ICTAI will be based in Bengaluru, and it will focus on healthcare, agriculture and smart mobility. It will also work on establishing best practices in fundamental research, ICTAI governance and talent acquisition. The centre will also focus on skill development in the domain of AI to develop adequate human resources. ICTAI will also explore how AI technologies developed by the centre can be converted into products.
