AMD’s India unit and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru have partnered to advance high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) research in the country.

Under the collaboration, AMD will closely work with a team of professors and researchers from IISc to study heterogeneous computing including in the areas of core design, AI training, inference, and compilation. The research intellectual property (IP) will be jointly owned by both parties. AMD will also sponsor students pursuing research in areas such as low power designs, machine learning (ML) based design optimisations, pruning and quantisation for ML models.

Furthermore, AMD has provided IISc with a cluster of HPC nodes equipped with EPYC processors, MI instinct graphics processing units (GPUs), and Alveo V70 accelerators.
