IIT-Madras researchers develop AI algorithms to tackle engineering problems.

Researchers at Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) have announced that they have developed algorithms for novel applications in AI, machine learning and deep learning to solve engineering problems.

The researchers intend to establish a startup called ‘AISoft’ to develop solutions for fields such as thermal management, semiconductors, automobiles, aerospace and more.

AIsoft is ‘nearly million-fold faster’ as compared to existing solutions in the field, according to Vishal Nandigana, Assistant Professor, Fluid Systems Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The researchers utilised a AI trained with data sets and a deep learning model to arrive at the solutions.They have also developed hardware products aiming to solve thermal management problems in thermal and electronic cooling industries.
