“Our top-ranked AI research group at the Kohli Centre for Intelligent Systems, and our emerging Blockchain Centre of Excellence, through these programmes, have been able to convey the recent research advancements to the industry. In return, our researchers are benefitting from insights into challenging industry problems,” said Prof P J Narayanan, Director of IIIT-Hyderabad.
