Amazon and IIT Bombay has begun a multiyear collaboration, an initiative that will advance artificial intelligence and machine learning research within speech, language, and multimodal AI domains
Amazon and the Indian Institute of Technology–Bombay (IIT Bombay) have announced the creation of the Amazon IIT–Bombay AI-ML (artificial intelligence – machine learning) Initiative.
The Amazon IIT–Bombay AI-ML initiative is a multiyear collaboration that will fund research projects, PhD fellowships, and community events, such as research symposia. The initiative, which will be housed in the IIT Bombay Department of Computer Science and Engineering, will advance artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) within speech, language and multimodal AI domains.
“With industry collaborators like Amazon who have a deep sense of technology and global reach, we hope to be able to expedite the deployment of technologies/products in the field of AI-ML.” said Subhasis Chaudhuri, director at IIT Bombay.
Amazon and IIT Bombay have existing ties, including through the Amazon Research Awards program. The most recent award was granted in 2022 to Preethi Jyothi, associate professor of computer science and engineering at IIT-Bombay, who was recognized for her work on fairness in speech recognition.
