New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) The NITI Aayog on Wednesday entered into a partnership with technology company ABB India to work together towards realizing the government's ambitious vision of 'Make in India' through advanced manufacturing technologies that incorporate the latest developments in robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
As per the statement of intent (SoI) signed on Wednesday, the NITI Aayog will work with ABB across various sectors to suggest solutions for digitalization, incorporating the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI technologies.
Jointly, NITI Aayog and ABB will work with ministries, solicit feedback for areas critical to them and discuss solutions using industrial automation, and digitalization technologies.
"We are looking forward to learning more about practical applications of future technologies such as AI and IoT, especially in streamlining governance and economic systems.
"This collaboration, which will include cross-sectoral understanding of digitalization at ABB's world class centres, will be key in driving progress of key sectors in India," said NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant.
Through this SoI, NITI Aayog will facilitate participation of policymakers and government functionaries in workshops and training programs organised by ABB India.
The first workshop for senior government officials would be organised in June at ABB Ability Innovation Centre in Bengaluru.
