NEW DELHI, AUGUST 30: IIT Kharagpur has joined hands with Amazon to develop an online platform that provides a variety of resources for learning about artificial intelligence (AI). The institute will work with Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary company of Amazon.com, to create one-point access for AI-related resources.
The platform called National Artificial Intelligence Resource Portal (NAIRP) will index a wide variety of AI-specific learning materials such as workbooks, courses, datasets, codes, tools and platforms.
It would allow interested candidates access to different resources for converting concepts into working modules. In addition to this, the platform will encourage students and researchers towards contributing to open-source educational resources for AI-related tasks.
“The contributions from AWS will enable us to provide cloud computing to all learners and reduce the high barrier to make training in AI more available,” said Professor Partha Pratim Chakrabarti, Director, IIT Kharagpur, who conceptualized the development of NAIRP.
IIT Kharagpur had already adopted the AWS Educate program in March 2019 to help students gain in-demand cloud computing skills, including hands-on AI experience on AWS Cloud platform.
“AWS is delighted to work with IIT Kharagpur in developing the NAIRP platform powered by Amazon SageMaker, and we are excited about the opportunity to help make machine learning skills available to every developer,” said Bratin Saha, Vice President, AWS Machine Learning & Engines.
