The Indraprastha Institute of Information and Technology (IIIT) Delhi has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Navy under, which the institute will be training the Naval Officers in Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The officers, who are working with the navy will be allowed to pursue Masters of Technology with specialisation in AI or M.Tech AI from the institute as a regular student, however their screening process will be different.

Registrar at IIIT-Delhi, Ashok Solanki told the Indian Express that the officers will be selected through a ‘mutually agreed screening process’ by the Navy and IIIT. The institute will be creating supernumerary seats for the Indian Defence personnel. As of now, upto 4 seats will be provided to the naval officers in a batch but the same can also be extended.

Moving forward, a research collaboration where the students and faculty at IIIT might help the Navy on a project could be envisaged but there is no defined plan as of now, said Solanki.

In furtherance of these initiatives and to be enable expertise to build up in this niche area, an MoU with IIIT-Delhi has been concluded to facilitate M.Tech Programme for Naval Officers with specialisation in Artificial Intelligence,” said officer from Indian Navy.
