IIT-Delhi, IISC, KIAMS to help SMEs face 'disruptive' techs like AI

Chennai, Mar 10 (UNI) To enable the Indian manufacturing to face the 'disruptive' technology like Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Union Government would set up four SAMARTH innovation centres in the country's top

He said the level and the earnest of the SAMARTH initiative could be gauged from the fact that the cooperation for the same was sought from Germany during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to that country last year.
Dr Ashwani Gupta, Scientist 'G' Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, said besides IIT, Delhi and IISC, Bengaluru, the other two centres would come up at the CMTI Bangalore and Kirloskar Institute of

While the centre at the IIT, Delhi has already been inaugurated, the two others at IISc, Bengaluru and the KIAMS Pune were likely to start by September this year.
All these centers will become self sustainable within three years.
