Discussing the IIT Delhi's arrangements for the School of AI, Prof V. Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi stated, "The future progress of a nation will depend on its AI capability. Therefore, many countries have started investing heavily in AI. India is also responding to this. PM Shri Narendra Modi has emphasized the importance of AI in his policies.

  • To unite the more than fifty IIT Delhi employees independently put resources into different parts of the field. With this, ScAI hopes to go about as a power multiplier for general research efficiency.

A program in AI is needed because current degrees are broad-based, and do not make it easy for students to learn the depths of different subfields within AI. On the other hand, there is strong demand globally for skilled AI practitioners, which these programs can cater to.,” Prof Rao further added.

Given its multi-disciplinary nature, ScAI will have an adaptable personnel model for example it will have center staff, joint personnel, and aide employees (who may likewise be from the business). 

"Core faculty members will be those who consider AI, or its applications in various domain areas (e.g., healthcare, transportation), as their main research area. Core faculty members will also be responsible for developing the School and will be deeply invested in its success. ScAI expects to hire at least 20 core faculty members in the next ten years," Prof Mausam, School of AI's Founding Head stated.

As ScAI begins, a few existing employees in the foundation are probably going to take joint arrangements in ScAI and give early bearings to the school. At long last, assistant employees will be the individuals who are full-time in another division, however, will connect with ScAI's employees on research activities, and may likewise show elective courses. 

"We are also looking for external partners to help shape this new school into a world-class entity", Prof. Mausam included. 

By and large, ScAI will be wide in its exploration directions and multi-disciplinary in its scholastic interests. The School of AI will be IIT Delhi's 6th school.
