NITI Aayog and tech giant Google have partnered up to focus on advancing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in India. This collaboration is said to involve a range of initiatives including training and incubating AI and ML focused Indian startups.
NITI Aayog has commented that "NITI's partnership with Google will unlock massive training initiatives, support startups and encourage AI research through PhD scholarships, all of which contributes to the larger idea of a technologically-empowered New India."
A hackathon is expected to be organised which focuses on solving challenges in India's key sectors such as agriculture, healthcare and education. This appears to be a very promising partnership that will help India move forward by harnessing these technologies. We look forward to seeing these initiatives in action!
