Center for Developing Intelligent Systems

About Us


CDIS - The Center for Developing Intelligent Systems - is an R&D Center within IIT Kanpur dedicated to rapid development and prototyping of intelligent software systems, geared towards solving problems arising within the Indian ecosystem.

CDIS operates as a unique hybrid of an academic center with a central translational focus. We focus on filling the gap between conceptualization and deployment of intelligent systems — by hosting equipment and experts that can rapidly convert cutting-edge concepts into working prototypes for clients of the center, both from within and outside IITK.

  • Development: We execute a solution (or prototype) development pipeline.
  • Research: We mentor & collaborate with students, researchers, and engineers to solve real-world problems.
  • Teaching: We train IITK students, researchers, engineers in DevOps with an AI/ML focus.
  • Consulting: We consult clients on resource constraints, data privacy, modeling, budgets & timelines.
