Technology Inceptions

The Department of Science and Technology (DST) will start a mission called Cyber Physical Systems which is a marriage between information, decision making and Artificial Intelligence.

The mission is worth Rs 3,660 cr for next three years and it would set up hubs in every conceivable acres of artificial intelligence. "This would be a very historical mission in which industry, corporations would be looking at AI as equal partners, I want industry to be totally on-board to provide direction, early vision, problems and work together in also leveraging resources that would be created by government," according to Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary of DST.

A parallel mission is being started in quantum communication and computing. These missions bring different components of society i.e. government, industry, academia, R&D labs etc. on board in a very compelling way. The missions include the entire end-to-end value chain from knowledge generation to knowledge consumption. While it has basic R&D, it also has technology development, skills, human resource development, incubators, support for start-ups, international collaborations,” he said.
