NVIDIA, the AI computing company, has launched the NVIDIA Inception program in India, in recognition of the country’s potential for artificial intelligence innovation. Inception is a virtual incubator program to support start-ups with revolutionary ideas in AI. Members will receive a custom set of benefits, from hardware grants and marketing support to training with deep learning experts.
The Inception Program was launched in India at the inaugural NVIDIA Emerging Companies Summit India, part of the GPU Technology Conference (GTCx), aimed at bringing together the brightest minds and greatest ideas in GPU computing. Such is the momentum around AI among Indian innovators that, at launch, the Inception Program already has close to 100 Indian start-ups as members.
NVIDIA announced a collaboration with IIT-Guwahati (IIT-G) and IIT-Roorkee (IIT-R) to develop skills in high performance computing (HPC) programming and deep learning. With this collaboration, IIT-G and IIT-R aim to train over 250 students in the next year through workshops and sessions to develop skills in deep learning and CUDA, the parallel computing programming model.
Machine learning and deep learning have become today’s most transformative technologies, creating a significant impact in every industry. Under the Electronics and ICT Academy program, sponsored by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, IIT-G and IIT-R plan to set up a training academy to develop skill sets in fundamental and advanced aspects of AI to bridge the gap between academia and industry. As a deep learning pioneer, NVIDIA is an ideal choice for the institutions to partner with this program.
