The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad and Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have renewed their academic cooperation agreement. The MoU covers machine learning and probabilistic reasoning techniques. AIST’s centres for artificial intelligence aim to create global partnerships with academic and research institutions (AI).
- A Memorandum of Understanding between IIT Hyderabad and the Japan AI Institute has been renewed
- Initiate seminars, symposiums, and other types of discussions.
- Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Mining, and other AI themes were explored by IIT Hyderabad students.
- AIST aims to build global partnerships with academic and research institutions through its centers.
- AIRC is a global hub for large-scale AI research, collaborating with institutes and universities.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been renewed between the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad and Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). This will help the two institutions work together more in Artificial Intelligence.
As of October 29, 2018, the AIRC at AIST and the IIT Hyderabad signed a memorandum of understanding. When IIT Hyderabad and AIRC have worked together for the last three years, they have done a lot of research together, and AIRC has given many IIT Hyderabad students internships.
Some IIT Hyderabad students collaborated with AIRC on machine learning, data mining, and other AI topics, such as Deep Learning and Machine Learning. The newly-extended MoU covers joint scientific and technological cooperation in areas like machine learning and probabilistic reasoning techniques for different data types and how they work together.
During Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Japan in 2018, the then director of IIT Hyderabad, Uday B Desai, signed a first MoU with AIRC.” Since then, AIRC has had researchers from IIT Hyderabad come to speak at AIRC’s international symposiums and talk about their research ideas with AIRC researchers, too. AIRC, the director of AIRC, said that based on the collaboration, five intern students were hired by AIRC. Their work helped move the joint research projects forward, he said.
This will make it easier to hold seminars, symposiums, and other meetings because the MoU has been extended. It will also help interns from IIT Hyderabad who is working with AIRC, and it will encourage scientists, staff, and researchers from other institutions to exchange ideas.
To build a center of excellence for AI and ML at IIT Hyderabad and to help the world meet its changing needs, collaborations with other organizations like AIST are essential.
By partnering with other universities and research institutions worldwide through its centers, AIST wants to build a global network. When it comes to big AI research, the Artificial Intelligence Research Center (AIRC) is working with other groups worldwide to build and promote groups of people interested in this type of work.
“IIT Hyderabad is one of the first universities in the country to focus on AI and ML,” says the teacher. We knew how important AI would be long before we did. We are the first to start an undergraduate program (BTech) in AI. A whole department of AI is also a first for the country, says Murty. “We also have the first one in the country that has a BTech, MTech, and Ph.D. in AI,” says Murty.
IIT Hyderabad’s close relationship with Japanese organizations is creating a unique educational ecosystem that is interactive and cutting-edge, a statement from the institute said.
