Bhubaneswar, Dec 23 (LocalWire) Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday said that the Centre of Excellence (CoE) powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) at College of Engineering and Technology (CET) here is a step towards fulfilling the BJD government’s dream to make the state one of the top three investment destinations in the country.
“The collaboration between Tech Mahindra and CET to build the Center of Excellence powered by Artificial Intelligence is a step towards fulfilling our dream to make Odisha one of the top three investment destinations in the country,” Patnaik said after inaugurating the centre.
“It is also an opportunity for our youth and young professionals to leverage next-generation technologies to drive innovation and create sustainable solutions for a better tomorrow,” he said.
The CoE is the outcome of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Tech Mahindra and CET to train young graduates in the field of new age technologies like AI and applying them in everyday life.
The initiative is aimed at fostering a growth ecosystem that will positively impact the economy and lives of people in the state.
As part of the MoU, the CoE will serve as a platform to incubate new solutions that will leverage cutting-edge AI technology through proof of concepts (PoC), to develop business use cases that are impacting manufacturing industries and public service organisations.
