NVIDIA joins hands with VJTI Mumbai

NVIDIA and VJTI Mumbai partner to accelerate R&D at the institute's business incubator.

The Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI), Mumbai and NVIDIA today announced the availability of next-generation computing capability at the Technology Business Incubator (TBI), housed at VJTI. TBI now has an NVIDIA DGX System built on the revolutionary NVIDIA Volta GPU platform and will allow for researchers as well as startups to build solutions leveraging the computational capability afforded by the NVIDIA DGX System.

The facility is powered by an NVIDIA GPU-accelerated DGX-1 AI Supercomputer powered by eight NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerators, NVIDIA NVLink and new Tensor Core architecture and a complete Deep Learning Stack with optimized versions of today’s most popular frameworks. What this allows for is faster Deep Learning Training, and improved productivity, compared to CPU-only systems.

The Technology Business Incubator was established recently under a grant from the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India under NIDHI initiative. The aim of the incubator is to foster a culture of innovation for the startup ecosystem in the areas of clean-tech, energy, IoT, cloud computing and cybersecurity. The TBI and computing platform powered by NVIDIA helps the startup ecosystem in Mumbai which is the third-largest in the country. The city was also first in the number of startup registrations in India in 2018, per a report from KPMG.

The Technology Business Incubator at VJTI will be extending the use of the NVIDIA DGX System to potential startups and other government and civilian research organizations. To access the resources at the facility, interested startups can approach to VJTI-TBI.
