IIT Madras creates applications for AI, ML to solve engineering problems

The researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras(IIT – M), have now developed algorithms that enable the novel application for Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial Intelligence to solve engineering problems, Economic Times reported recently.

The research is led by Dr. Vishal Nandigana, who is an assistant professor – fluid system laboratory, department of mechanical engineering at IIT-Madras.

According to the report, Mr. Nandigana revealed that their deep learning and AI algorithms solve a wide range of problems in numerous engineering fields, which includes aerospace, semiconductors, automobile, electronics, thermal management, cooling applications, among others, thus eliminating manual intervention.

The team has named their AI software as "AISoft" and planning to establish a startup for its first deployment.

In the past, AI, deep learning, ML were being used in areas such as speech recognition, image recognition, signal processing, and prediction.

Moreover, very limited attempts have been made across the globe in using this technology in solving engineering problems such as the electronics cooling industries, thermal management, and automobile issues like the prediction of the fluid dynamic over a bonnet, or even inside the engine and more.

Executive Opinion

The same ET report quoted Assistant Professor, Fluid Systems Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Vishal Nandigana,  "We tested AISoft and used it to solve such thermal management problems. We found it to be nearly million-fold faster compared to existing solutions currently used in the field. Our AI works on any generalized rectilinear and curvilinear input geometry. Our research saves the computational time, which is the bottleneck to solve most engineering problems."

Artificial Intelligence and IIT-Madras Developments

With respect to the commercial market, the team also claims to have developed software and hardware products. These products are industry agnostic and data-centric. Also these products can be used to solve complex engineering problems as compared to other software and tools in the market.

The report also suggested that lots of pressing problems for the industries can be solved with the latest newly introduced algorithms. Further, these algorithms can also be used for the purpose of education.

In the month of August 2019,  IIT-Madras incubated two startups named One-Fourth Labs and Guvi and pledged to create around one lacs experts in then ML and AI by the end of 2020 via a joint venture, which focuses more on training the Indian students, engineers, and faculty.

Recently, Freshworks has partnered with the Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and  Artificial Intelligence in the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M), to improve the predictive capability of its CRM software.
