NVIDIA and Reliance announce collaboration, to build AI

US technology company NVIDIA and Reliance Industries on Friday announced that they are building a partnership to build AI supercomputers in India. “The companies will work together to build AI infrastructure that is over an order of magnitude more powerful than the fastest supercomputer in India today,” the firms said in a statement. NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang met Prime Minister Narendra Modi had previously met on Monday, days before making the announcement.

NVIDIA started its operations in India back in 2004

NVIDIA started its operations in India back in 2004 and its current collaboration with Reliance will “develop India’s own foundation large language model trained on the nation’s diverse languages and tailored for generative AI applications to serve the world’s most populous nation,” the statement by the firm said.

NVIDIA will provide access to the most advanced GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip and DGX Cloud, an AI supercomputing service in the cloud. GH200 marks a fundamental shift in computing architecture that provides exceptional performance and massive memory bandwidth.

“The NVIDIA-powered AI infrastructure is the foundation of the new frontier into AI for Reliance Jio Infocomm, Reliance Industries’ telecom arm. The global AI revolution is transforming industries and daily life. “To serve India’s vast potential in AI, Reliance will create AI applications and services for their 450 million Jio customers and provide energy-efficient AI infrastructure to scientists, developers and startups across India,” the statement said.

It is also said that AI can help rural farmers interact via cell phones in their local language to get weather information and crop prices and also help with providing expert diagnosis of medical symptoms and imaging scans when doctors may not be available. AI will also be better at predicting cyclonic storms using decades of atmospheric data, helping those at risk to evacuate and find shelter.

“The AI infrastructure will be hosted in AI-ready computing data centers that will eventually expand to 2,000 MW. Execution and implementation will be managed by Jio, which has extensive offerings and experience across mobile telephony, 5G spectrum, fiber networks and more,” it said.

CEO Jensen Huang said NVIDIA is “delighted to partner with Reliance to build state-of-the-art AI supercomputers in India.” “India has scale, data and talent. With the most advanced AI computing infrastructure, Reliance can build its own large language models that power generative AI applications made in India, for the people of India,” he said.

“As India advances from a country of data proliferation to creating technology infrastructure for widespread and accelerated growth, computing and technology super centres like the one we envisage with NVIDIA will provide the catalytic growth just like Jio did to our nation’s digital march,” said Mukesh Ambani.

Akash Ambani, chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm said that Jio is committed to fuelling India’s technology renaissance by democratising access to cutting edge technologies and that the collaboration with NVIDIA is a significant step in this direction. “Together, we will develop a state-of-the-art AI cloud infrastructure that is secure, sustainable and deeply relevant across India, accelerating the nation’s journey towards becoming an AI powerhouse,” he added.
