There can be few countries as well placed to take advantage of the AI revolution as India.
Its world-leading Universities and research institutions are already helping to drive forward innovation in artificial intelligence, while India’s vast economy is poised be a voracious consumer of AI, with its transformative potential.
The State of Artificial Intelligence India 2021 projects that India’s AI market will grow from $7.8bn in 2021 to $23bn in 2026.
Access to leading-edge AI compute will be a major factor in how rapidly the country is able to progress, which is why Graphcore has chosen to open its first office in India, under the leadership of former Cray executive Sudhakar Yerneni.
Based in Pune, Sudhakar and a growing team of sales and technical support staff will work with customers and partners across India to drive adoption of Graphcore’s advanced AI systems, which are powered by the company’s Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU).
