The AI department at IIT-Hyderabad has been recognized for pioneering efforts in AI pedagogy and research, including its BTech, MTech and PhD programs in AI, as well as interdisciplinary AI research. This effort has inspired many other institutions across the country to launch similar programs. To support the research activities of the AI department, a Centre for Research and Innovation in AI (क्रिया) has now been established with the support of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and Honeywell. This AI क्रिया Centre -- in addition to seating areas, classrooms and conference rooms for researchers -- houses a mini-data centre with high-end computational facilities to meet the ever-increasing demand of researchers associated with the AI department at IIT Hyderabad. With various GPU servers and the deep learning supercomputers NVIDIA DGX1 and DGX2, the data centre supports upto 250 TFlops of GPU computing power. This centre will be used by faculty, research staff and students at IIT Hyderabad to carry out state-of-the art AI research in-house, as well as in partnership with its collaborators in government and the industry.
