Tata Elxsi is among the world’s leading design and technology services providers across industries, including Automotive, Broadcast, Communications, Healthcare, and Transportation. The company helps customers reimagine their products and services through design thinking and the application of digital technologies such as IoT, Cloud, Mobility, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence.

As a part of their CSR initiative, Tata Elxi has provided generous support to the EECS Division’s M.Tech. Programme in Artificial Intelligence.

The Division of EECS launched the first ever M.Tech. Programme in Artificial Intelligence in August 2019 with a batch of 36 students selected from all over India through a competitive selection process joining the Programme. The programme is run jointly by four departments: CSA, ECE, EE, and ESE.

Tata Elxi has provided a CSR grant with which a computational Lab for an AI Lab for M.Tech. students has been created in the Division of EECS (Department of ECE).  The lab houses a GPU based Supermicro server and several computational workstations which have proved to be valuable computational resources for the M.Tech. students. The students utilize the Tata Elxi computational platform for running their project work in AI courses such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Analytics, Pattern Recognition and Neural Networks, Computer Vision, and Natural Language Processing.
