NVIDIA brings GPU In­cep­tion Pro­gram to In­dia

NVIDIA In­cep­tion Pro­gram boasts of of­fer­ing di­rect ac­cess to GPU tech­nol­ogy, deep learn­ing ex­per­tise, and net­work sup­port to start-ups

Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence (AI), Vir­tual Re­al­ity (VR) and Aug­mented Re­al­ity (AR) are ex­pected to cat­alyze the mar­ket in the near fu­ture. Th­ese im­por­tant pieces of tech­nolo­gies are be­lieved to play a key role in driv­ing in­no­va­tion in many sec­tors. NVIDIA is one of the few com­pa­nies which are ded­i­cat­ing it­self to AI, VR and AR whole­heart­edly. The com­pany made it clear ear­lier in 2016 in San Jose and re­it­er­ated its com­mit­ment to AI and deep learn­ing in Mum­bai as it brought the global con­fer­ence to In­dia where more than 1000 start-ups took part. At the GTCx In­dia, the com­pany tried to con­vey to start-ups and or­ga­ni­za­tions as to how they can com­ple­ment their AR, AI, and VR drive.

At the con­fer­ence, NVIDIA launched the NVIDIA In­cep­tion pro­gram in In­dia, in recog­ni­tion of the coun­try’s po­ten­tial for ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence in­no­va­tion. In­cep­tion is a vir­tual in­cu­ba­tor pro­gram to sup­port start-ups with revo­lu­tion­ary ideas in AI. Mem­bers will re­ceive a cus­tom set of ben­e­fits, from hard­ware grants and mar­ket­ing sup­port to train­ing with deep learn­ing ex­perts.

At its In­cep­tion pro­gram, more than 100 In­dian start-ups had reg­is­tered. Most of th­ese start-ups are de­vel­op­ing AI, VR, and AR re­lated so­lu­tions.

The NVIDIA Emerg­ing Com­pa­nies Sum­mit In­dia, used as the plat­form for launch­ing the NVIDIA In­cep­tion Pro­gram, is the only event in In­dia aimed at start-ups spe­cial­iz­ing in AI. The event brought to­gether 12 vi­sion­ary start-ups in AI, VR, au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles and ro­bot­ics with lead­ing tech in­vestors, in­clud­ing Ra­jan Anan­dan, Vice Pres­i­dent for South East Asia and In­dia at Google. Health­care start-up Qure. ai won the ‘So­cial In­no­va­tion Award’ at the Emerg­ing Com­pa­nies Sum­mit. The Best of Show award was pre­sented to in­tel­li­gent HR so­lu­tions start-up Edge Net­works.

Vishal Dhu­par, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor - South Asia, NVIDIA said, “Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence has gone from sci­ence fiction to re­al­ity, thanks to a new com­put­ing model: Graph­ics Pro­cess­ing Unit (GPU)-ac­cel­er­ated deep learn­ing. We be­lieve the next gen­er­a­tion of break­throughs in tech­nol­ogy and busi­ness will be driven by the AI start-up com­mu­nity. Young In­dia’s as­pi­ra­tions, ideas and po­ten­tial are global in scale, and we are ex­cited to am­plify the imag­i­na­tion and in­tel­li­gence of the coun­try’s bright­est minds through the In­cep­tion Pro­gram and the Emerg­ing Com­pa­nies Sum­mit.”
