The centre will operate within IISc’s Department of Computer Science and Automation (CSA) and will focus on solving foundational problems in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Computer Systems, and Theoretical Computer Science.

“To inspire top researchers in India, this initiative will onboard and grant fellowships to highly-skilled Pre-doc, PhD, and Postdoc candidates. Additionally, the centre will focus on nurturing a new generation of talent by mentoring students from tier 2 and tier 3 institutes in India through internships, workshops and Pre-doc opportunities.
