We are a young and dynamic research group as part of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad. We are committed to pushing the frontiers of Natural Language Processing (NLP), Information Retrieval (IR), and related domains through cutting-edge research and development. We collaborate closely with academic institutions, industry partners, and other research groups to drive innovation in these fields. Our focus is on developing efficient and effective algorithms, models, and systems that can scale to real-world applications. We also strive to make our research accessible and impactful by publishing our findings in top-tier conferences and journals, and by open-sourcing our software and datasets.

We are located near the beautiful city of Hyderabad, which was established in 1591 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, a ruler of the Qutb Shahi dynasty. The city's rich cultural and architectural heritage is renowned, having been predominantly governed by the Nizams throughout its history. The city's unique blend of modern infrastructure and traditional charm make it a must-visit destination for anyone looking to experience the diverse and dynamic culture of India.

We are grateful for fundings from Microsoft, TiHan, Nvidia, Accenture, Honeywell, etc.
