Mind Tree & Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc), have partnered to work together and create an endowment focused on Artificial Intelligence research. This partnership will facilitate teaching and research for AI in both Data Sciences and Natural Language Processing. This endowment will introduce the institute’s students to solving modern business problems using AI and machine learning, leading to develop high-impact solutions at scale.
Named as Mindtree Associate Professor Chair on Artificial Intelligence, the endowment fund is designed to attract dynamic faculty doing ground breaking AI research with both technical scholars and domain experts. The main topics of research include topological methods for visualization; multiscale representation of large scale scientific data; geometric and topological simplification; and applications of visualization in life sciences, climate science, and material science. Prof. Natarajan of IIT Bangalore Associate Professor, Deptt. Of Computer Science and Automation in his latest research is set to impact next-generation data processing, analysis and visualization technology in the large. The main topics of research include topological methods for visualization; multiscale representation of large scale scientific data; geometric and topological simplification; and applications of visualization in life sciences, climate science, and material science.
Rostow Ravanan,CEO and Managing Director of Mindtree remarked,“Artificial Intelligence, considered the cornerstone of future technologies, needs an ideal ground for further research and development in India. IISc is perfectly poised to be this space, allowing the best minds interested in this area to innovate and develop unique AI-based solutions for current problems. Our collaboration with IISc will help create opportunities to strengthen research in AI and provide our clients an avenue to interact with some of the best minds working in this segment.”
“This association with Mindtree has substantially bolstered IISc’s capabilities in some of the most important domains that hold the key to the future of technology,” said Prof. Anurag Kumar, Director, IISc. “We look forward to receiving significant industry-specific exposure through this association, in modern AI and computation technology and the problems it solves. The initiative will open up a new territory for our students to learn, innovate, implement and execute unique ideas with a far-reaching positive impact.”
