  • Model centre is aimed at solving major challenges in India w/special focus on application-based AI research in healthcare, agriculture, & smart mobility.

Model ICTAI

Objectives

  • It will aid in Developing & deploying AI-led application-based research projects.

  • It will conduct advanced research to incubate AI-led solutions in 3 imp. areas – healthcare, agriculture & smart mobility – by bringing together expertise of TIFR and Intel.

  • It will experiment, discover & establish best practices in domains of ICTAI governance, fundamental research, physical infrastructure, compute & service infrastructure needs, & talent acquisition.

Key Features

  • Model ICTAI will develop AI foundational frameworks, tools & assets, including curated datasets & unique AI algorithms.

  • It will develop standards & support policy development related to IT such as data-storage, information security, privacy, & ethics for data capture & use.

  • It will develop AI foundational technologies to promote applied research that can scale for national impact and will lead to the creation of vibrant & self-sustaining ecosystem.

  • ICTAI will collaborate w/industry leaders, startups, & AI services & product companies to productize technologies & IP that are developed by it.

  • It will support skilling & talent development for world-class AI talent.

  • Learning & best practices developed thru this model ICTAI will be used by NITI Aayog to set up future ICTAIs across country.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

  • Artificial Intelligence comes from computer systems that are programmed to — or have learnt to — do tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence.

  • Many apps & software are already making mundane work easier by doing certain part of it for us, based on acquired intelligence.
