IIT Jodhpur currently has strong academic programs in Biosciences/Bioengineering, Computer Science and Engineering., Chemical Engineering, Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgy and Materials Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Management and Entrepreneurship, Humanities and Social Sciences. The addition of DGX A100 systems will facilitate different research projects currently underway at IITJ. The DGX A100 will enable IIT Jodhpur to expand its work in projects across AI, ML, Computer Vision, IoT, Sensors, Control Systems, Autonomous systems, Cyber Physical Systems, Robotics, Smart Health, Smart Cities, Bioinformatics, Drug Discovery, Data Analytics, Augmented and Virtual reality and many others. Students from the recently launched undergraduate and postgraduate programs in AI and Data Science will be majorly benefitted by these systems.
“AI has the potential to solve some of humanity’s greatest and most complex problems. However, with ever increasing size of data and the need for faster time to discovery, AI infrastructure is critical to success. NVIDIA’s DGX A100 systems will greatly augment our AI supercomputing facility and bring to our students and research partners the very best AI technology to help them succeed as they strive to be the best in the world,” said Prof. Santanu Chaudhury, Director, IIT Jodhpur.
NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.
