IIT-Madras develops AI, ML applications to solve engineering problems
The researchers of Indian Institute of Technology-Madras have developed algorithms on novel applications for Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning which can further solve numerous engineering problems.
The researchers are all set to open a startup to deploy their AI Software called ‘AISoft’ to develop solutions to engineering problems in varied fields such as in thermal management, semiconductors among others.
Despite being a familiar name in the engineering sector, AI, ML and Deep Learning are only used in restricted areas such as signal processing, speech recognition, image reconstruction and prediction etc. According to the institute, very few attempts are made globally which has used these algorithms in solving the engineering problems such as electronics cooling industries, thermal management etc.
“We tested AIsoft and used it to solve such thermal management problems. We found it to be nearly million-fold faster compared to existing solutions currently used in the field. Our AI works on any generalised rectilinear and curvilinear input geometry. Our research saves the computational time, which is the bottleneck to solve most engineering problems.” said Vishal Nandigana, assistant professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Madras.
