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
institutions, including IIT, Delhi and the Indian Institute of Science(IISC), Bengaluru and at Kirloskar Institute in Pune.
This would help the industry shift to smart and a global eco system, Mr N Sivanand, Joint Secretary, Department of Heavy Industry, said in his address at the ongoing International Engineering Sourcing Show
(IESS) here on Saturday.
“The SAMARTH (Smart and Advanced Manufacturing Rapid Transformation Hub) centres would enhance competitiveness of the Indian industry, particularly in the MSME sector.
''Cooperation is also being sought from Germany to enabled the Indian firms face the ever-emerging challenge of the global “disruptive” technologies'', Mr Sivanand said at the EEPC India’s flagship event, being organised with the support of the Department of Heavy Industry and the Department of Commerce, Government of India.
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
Advanced Management Studies (KIAMS), Pune, for promoting smart and advanced manufacturing in the country.
The Department of Heavy Industry has approved a grant of Rs 78 crore to support these centres.
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.
They have been mandated to cover nearby clusters and colleges.
SAMARTH Udyog would give a boost to the ‘Make in India’ program and would facilitate smaller units in adopting the latest technologies and proposes to cover a wide gamut of technologies and trends like, AI, additive manufacturing (3D Printing), advanced robotics, augmented reality, cloud computing, cyber security, simulation, system integration, analytics etc.
These centres would share each other’s resource to maximise the utilization of resources.
