[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: C
Notes:

Explanation: ARYABHAT-1:

  • Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science have developed an analogue chipset called ARYABHAT-1.
  • It stands for Analog Reconfigurable Technology and Bias-scalable Hardware for AI Tasks.
  • It will allow Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning apps to perform much better and faster. It is useful for AI-based applications which deal with object or speech recognition systems, like Alexa or Siri.
  • They are also very useful in operations that require massive parallel computing at high speeds.
