In continuance of his support for new age technologies, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant has once again extended his support to the startups working in deep tech. This time, it’s AI (Artificial Intelligence) which has garnered the morale boost from Kant.
In a Twitter post, Amitabh Kant wrote, “Artificial Intelligence is the future. Delighted that a vast number of Indian startup entrepreneurs are scaling up in this emerging growth area. Some of them are Deep Learn Labs, Qure AI, Sigtuple, Edge Networks, Siversparro, Fluid AI & Huew. Wish them all the very best!”
However, this isn’t the first time Amitabh Kant has come out supporting the growth and innovation of these technologies.
During the 12th India Digital Summit, Amitabh Kant had said, “This is a period of huge technology disruption in India. Artificial Intelligence alone will generate the opportunity to the tune of $32 Bn. Advanced robotics are already handling 25% of the jobs. This will rise to 45% in the coming years.”
So, which are these AI-startups that NITI Aayog CEO took notice of? Check out here:
