What Does it Plan to do?

The programme is planning to grow the AI & Robotics innovation ecosystem in India by creating or working with existing startups. The programme has aligned with the $100 million venture fund for supporting startups in the artificial intelligence and robotics sector.

It also plans to uplift the healthcare, education, mobility, infrastructure, agriculture, retail and cyber-security problems in India and globally. The programme will also facilitate students and professionals with a proper training in advancing their skills and knowledge regarding this sector. It will also develop products like:

  • DataSetu– Creating a data sharing ecosystem and marketplace that will boost the AI applications and solutions.
  • BhashaSetu– Enabling Indic language translation to expand the participation level in the economic growth of the country, regardless of languages.
  • Avtaar Robotics– Allowing emotive robotic nurses to transport healthcare professionals’ skills across the globe.
  • Akashmarg– Roads in the sky, like Drone Skyways, for autonomous drones.

Along with the technology-led economic growth and innovation in the startup ecosystem in India, the programme plans to aid the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat.
