Tata Group and NVIDIA announced a new partnership to establish an AI cloud in India. With a robust AI computing infrastructure, the goal is to democratize access to cutting-edge AI capabilities for a wide spectrum of organizations, businesses, AI researchers, and startups across the nation. The initiative will also include the development of an AI supercomputer which will use NVIDIA (News - Alert)'s next-generation GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip.
The AI cloud will be bolstered by Tata Communications' extensive global network, so enterprises can seamlessly transfer data across the AI cloud at fast speeds and accelerate the country's journey towards becoming a global AI hub.
“The global generative AI race is in full steam,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “Data centers worldwide are shifting to GPU computing to build energy-efficient infrastructure to support the exponential demand for generative AI.
“We are delighted to partner with Tata as they expand their cloud infrastructure service with NVIDIA AI supercomputing to support the exponential demand of generative AI startups and processing of large language models.” Huang said.
Tata Consultancy (News - Alert) Services (TCS) will leverage the new AI infrastructure to create and process generative AI applications spanning diverse sectors from manufacturing to consumer-oriented businesses. Additionally, TCS plans to enhance the skills of its extensive workforce of 600,000 through this partnership.
N. Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Sons, said: “The advancements in AI have made focus on AI a central priority in governments, industries and society at large. The impact of AI and machine learning is going to be profound across industries and every aspect of our lives. This is a key transformational trend of the decade and every company must prepare to make this AI transition.”
“Tata Group’s presence across sectors coupled with NVIDIA’s deep capabilities offers numerous opportunities for collaboration to advance India’s AI ambition,” said Chandrasekaran.
