Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur recently announced that its Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIOT) Center is getting ready to go live soon. Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have come together in the AIOT hub, which makes use of mobile communication technology (5G and beyond).
The hub will have three major characteristics — interconnected and intelligent devices, self-learning and self-healing human and machine workflows, and autonomous decision-making with edge computing.
“The AIOT Innovation Hub and JCKIC are initiatives of IIT Jodhpur to connect academics with real-life and industrial-scale problems. This will enrich the innovation ecosystem of IIT as well as Jodhpur city. We expect that in the near future, this will trigger local industrial development through start-ups and new generation MSME, who are eager to take forward the agenda of Atmanirbhar Bharat,” said IIT Jodhpur Director, Santanu Chaudhury.
Faculty and students at IIT Jodhpur and industry partners will be able to collaborate on AIOT technologies and products as a result of this initiative. These business partners can be brought together for the purpose of promoting the consumption of products, thereby increasing the likelihood of future success.
Starting in the IIT Jodhpur technology park, the AIOT Innovation Hub (including photonic systems) will help establish facilities for end-to-end design, development, prototyping, and delivery of AIOT (including photonic systems).
For the development of low-cost indigenous sensors, IIT Jodhpur proposes the establishment of a sensor fabrication foundry. Additionally, this facility is designed to support the production of sensors in order to reduce importation.
