As part of this it has launched a DeepTech Club to nurture startups in these fields. This is a program intended to nurture and promote India’s Deep Tech software ecosystem, to promote creation and evolution of more Deep Tech ventures, products and solutions.
The DeepTech Club, which has around 20 companies that research deep learning which will be co-led by Milind Hanchinmani, Director, Intel and other senior professionals from the IT fields.
“We are going to talk extensively on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Increasingly, machine learning and artificial intelligence are cropping up as solutions for handling data. While, the two are often used interchangeably, and though there are some parallels, they're not the same thing," said Somdutta Singh, co-chair, NPC. Singh said the organisations associated with the conclave will get a practical grounding in artificial intelligence and its business applications to help transform an organisation into a sustainable company. 
“We will help core deep learning start-ups in India collaborate with educational institutions worldwide along with helping them in their go-to-market, scaling-up, technology development, fundraising and international expansion," said Singh.
Start-ups who are in the space of Deep technologies like AI, ML, Robotics, Algorithms, Drone, AR/VR, Speech/Image, Security etc.  & creating new IP technology and/or keen on adopting latest technologies with a revenue up to $1Mn can apply.  Nasscom is planning to have a  qualitative batch of not more than 10 selected companies.
