ABB India and Niti Aayog have inked a pact to help the country reap the benefits of latest technologies including robotics and artificial intelligence.
The two institutions have signed a Statement of Intent to work together in preparing key sectors of the economy for digitalisation, artificial intelligence (AI) robotics, and industrial automation, an ABB India statement said.
Given the importance of the Indian food processing sector, the workshop will focus on digital and automation technologies for this sector.
The first workshop for senior government officials under this collaboration would be organized in June in Bengaluru.
Based on the interactions with ABB India, Niti Aayog will also make recommendations to government ministries for guidelines and policies regarding development and adoption of AI in various sectors with industrial automation and digitalisation as the backbone.
“ABB’s more than a hundred years’ presence in India and our pioneering technology leadership in industrial digitalisation position us well to support India in its ambitions for the next phase of its transformation,” said ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer.
