Hyderabad: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad is all set to get an artificial intelligence (AI) lab to be set up by Honeywell Technology Solutions (HTS). Both the entities have entered into an agreement to establish an AI lab and jointly research AI and related emerging technologies. The fully equipped lab will be managed, maintained and upgraded by IIT Hyderabad.
The lab was inaugurated on Wednesday by Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister for Education, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India. “IIT-H is the first institute in the country to offer full-fledged BTech in AI in line with the recommendation of NEP 2020,” said Pradhan.
HTS and IIT Hyderabad will together research technologies that solve problems of the future, with AI as the major focus area. Additionally, they have formed a mutual association to provide industry-specific domain training, remote project mentoring, engineering certificate courses, training workshops and hackathons for students of IIT Hyderabad and select employees of HTS.
The association will provide industry collaboration for IIT Hyderabad, an academic environment for Honeywell employees to conduct research, and enable students to upgrade their skills and improve their employment opportunities.
The two organisations will also develop courses pertaining to emerging technologies Honeywell uses in its portfolio to enable IIT Hyderabad students to gain industry exposure. The core content and other details on these courses will be mutually reviewed and regularly updated based on the requirements from IIT Hyderabad and the facilitators available from Honeywell. Honeywell had earlier funded a Materials Research Lab at IIT Hyderabad, while also enrolling a few employee-engineers for PhD courses at the institute.
