IIT-KGP innovation hub on AI and ML will help translate research to industry





Dear Reader,

Below are a few photos from the latest round of ration distributions for campus workers due to COVID-19.




The support of the "KGP Alumni Fund for COVID-19" by KGP alumni have helped make these efforts a huge success!                                                                                                                                                                    


Director Tewari posted the below note on his Facebook page about the efforts:

The distribution of essential items was undertaken again this month to the thousands of our friends in the community who are dependent on our campus for their livelihood and have been affected in 2020. The IIT KGP Alumni COVID-19 Social Welfare Mission is one of the longest and effective relief distribution initiatives conducted jointly by a higher educational institution and her alumni.

I express my heartfelt joy for being able to be an active part of this yajna and convey my gratitude to our distinguished alumni Vinod Gupta who ideated and patronized this campaign, Ranbir (Ron) Gupta under whose leadership IIT Kharagpur Foundation USA is running this year-long campaign and all the alumni who are making generous contributions towards it. Also to mention the laudable efforts of our security staff and all other stakeholders who have been managing this activity for months.


We are still raising funds for this initiative--please give back to sustain this program well into 2021!
