The establishment of the generative artificial intelligence center of excellence (CoE) at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, was announced on Wednesday by Wipro. The teams at Wipro center of excellence will work on solutions based on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other technologies.
The center will concentrate on research and development (R&D) projects and evaluate the commercial viability of research-based ventures undertaken by Yardi School of AI students at the institute. Wipro will provide financial assistance through the CoE to IIT Delhi’s generative AI research initiatives, including both fundamental and applied research.
According to a joint statement released by Wipro and IIT Delhi, the company’s $1 billion ambition to create an ecosystem of services in the field of AI, known as the “Wipro ai360” ecosystem, includes the formation of the generative AI CoE at the institute.
Professor Mausam, Dean of the Yardi School of AI at IIT Delhi said, “Students will gain valuable insight into problems of relevance to industry and will learn first-hand how their technical know-hows transfer to commercial environments with the help of the facility.”
The move is being taken as experiments and investments in generative AI continue to rise at every IT services company in the nation. During the company’s June quarter post-earnings press conference on July 12, K. Krithivasan, the recently appointed chief executive of Tata Consultancy Services, stated that the company is currently working on more than 50 proof-of-concept (PoC) projects and about 100 opportunities in the generative AI field.
