Automation and Robotics to re-shape the future of Indian Industry
Sep – Dec 2017
Passion for technology and the need to be globally competitive has paved the way for the rise of Automation in India. According to Nasscom, data science and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are emerging as the one of biggest growth opportunities for India to capitalize on. In a recent summit in India, former United States President Barack Obama emphasized that we can’t pretend automation doesn’t exist. Instead we need to invest in people’s skills. India’s Skill Development Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan shares a similar view – “India cannot afford to ignore new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and automation, and miss out on Industrial Revolution 4.0”. While the Indian Industry is readily welcoming foreign innovative technologies, many foreign companies are actively investing in the areas of automation, artificial intelligence and Internet of things (IoT) in India.
