Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Delhi has announced a collaboration with Vehant Technologies to undertake joint research projects focused on applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The research will enhance physical security, surveillance, and traffic monitoring.
Under the collaboration, Vehant Technologies will sponsor research projects and consultancies at IIIT Delhi. The company will also support MTech and Ph.D. students, starting with sponsoring up to five MTech students for the academic session 2022-23. The projects are all set to commence in August.
Through the sponsorship, students will receive full coverage of the cost of their education, including reimbursement of living costs. They will also get first-hand industry experience on live projects while simultaneously continuing their regular academics.
The IIIT-Delhi MTech students receiving the sponsorships will be called Vehant fellows. Each fellowship will have a commitment of Rs.10 lakh from Vehant Technologies throughout students’ academic courses, i.e., two years. Students can flexibly utilize the fund for research and educational purposes.
The Institute said, while IIIT-Delhi researchers and faculty are well equipped with experience in the field of computer science and engineering, the collaboration with Vehant Technologies will further propagate the system knowledge of artificial intelligence and machine learning among students.
