Research Trust Areas / Artificial Intelligence


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a term that is no longer confined to the academia or the high tech industry but one that has entered the layman’s vocabulary. The advances in AI technology have positively impacted essentially all areas of knowledge and learning. IIT Hyderabad has positioned itself to become a leader in this space by introducing strong teaching and research programs in this area. As an example, IITH is the only institute in India (as of this writing) to offer undergraduate, graduate and research degree programs in AI. A diverse team of faculty from various areas of engineering, mathematics, and liberal arts conduct cutting edge research in core and applied areas of AI. This is evidenced by publications in top notch conferences and journals, numerous sponsored projects, and strong industry collaboration. Project funding in excess of INR 6.5 Crores has been received by faculty in this thrust area.
