IIT-Delhi Establishes School of AI To Offer PhD and PG Degrees

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi today announced that the institute has established an independent School of Artificial Intelligence (ScAI) on its campus. The AI school will commence its PhD program from the next admission cycle, i.e. January 2021. The Tier-I institute is also planning to offer postgraduate (PG) degree courses.

According to sources, some of the key objectives of the ScAI includes-

  • To bring together the more than fifty IIT Delhi faculty members individually invested in various aspects of the field. With this, ScAI expects to act as a force multiplier for overall research productivity.
  • To provide external branding to IIT Delhi in this field of immense importance. A cohesive group in AI will allow focused hiring of faculty members and students to increase global visibility. It will become a one-stop centre for industry or government interested in collaborating or funding AI innovations.

Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions in an AI Interview

Interviews are tough. Even for the most competent candidates.

Research says the candidate must demonstrate high-energy and confidence. Because whatever you say during the interview will impact the hiring manager, even though you get the job or not.

Even for an AI career, some of the interview questions tend to come up time and again. So, what is the best way to deal with them? Let us have a look at some of the most frequently asked AI interview questions and see how to answer them.

Question 1. Define Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

Answer: Artificial Intelligence comes under the branch of science that deals with developing intelligent machines that can think, work, and react the way humans do.

Question 2. Can you mention the sectors with the greatest impact on AI?

Answer: In the present day, AI has almost paved its pathway into numerous fields, to name a few would be –
Computing field
Humanoid robots
Weather forecasting
Speech Recognition
Space and Aeronautics

Question 3. When we say Overfitting and Underfitting algorithms, what can you understand by it?

Answer: Both Overfitting and Underfitting hold accountable for poor performance. For instance, Overfitting tends to provide good performance on any trained data but poorer generalization to the other data. Whereas, Underfitting provides good performance on the training data alongside good generalization to the other data as well.

Question 4. What are the preferred programming languages for AI an AI engineer must know?

Answer: Well, if you’ve chosen this field, you need to be well-equipped with languages such as Python, R, Java, Prolog, and Lisp. These are some of the most common programming languages preferred in the AI field.

IIT Hyderabad M.Tech(RA Winter) Interview Experience


I got a call for M.Tech RA(Winter) on 19/11/2018 and Interview was scheduled on 26/11/2018. I applied using the GATE 2017 scorecard. My GATE 2017 score was 483 and rank 4611(gen). People having gate score 450+ was called(This is what I feel by talking to students there). Around 60+ people showed up.


First-round was a written exam. Test Duration is 1 an hour. It started at 10:30 am. The question paper consists of MCQ type questions.

Questions were based on C programming, Compiler Design, Analysis of sorting algorithms, Basic Machine Learning, Probability, Linear Algebra, DBMS, OS, etc. Other than basic ML questions all questions are like gate questions. Compiler Design questions were quite tricky.

After MCQ round a pen and paper-based coding round was taken. It consists of 2 programming questions one of them is related to dynamic programming. Test Duration was 1/2 an hour

(This was not considered for further shortlisting. They told us those who will be shortlisted based on the MCQ result. Questions may be asked in the interview regarding there approach to the coding problem)


20 students were selected for the next round. I was one of them 😀

First, we were told to sit in one classroom, and orientation for RA projects started at around 2 p.m followed by form filling in which you need to write your preference for interview. Projects were something related to autonomous cars (Computer Architecture Optimization), ML related project Computer Network related projects related to 5G, Compiler Design, etc.

After that Document verification was done. According to your preference for the project, the professor called us for an interview.

Prof 1 Research area(Compiler Design)

Prof 2 Research area(Computer Architecture)

Prof 3 Research area(Machine Learning)

Prof 3: Introduce yourself

Me: I told them I am currently working in TCS.

Prof 3: He asked whether TCS or TCS innovation.


(Maybe they are looking for research-oriented person)

Prof 1: What is the time complexity of Matrix Multiplication?

Me: O(n^3)

Prof 1: Explain how?

Me: Explained. He looks satisfied

Prof 1: What is LL1 parser? What is LR parser? Why they are named so?

Me: Explained but he wanted more info.

Prof 2: What is a spatial locality and temporal locality?

Me: Explained
