About The Centre For Excellence

As a pandemic grips the world, a person could be forgiven if they had forgotten about another threat to humanity’s way of life – the rise of robots. Artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and other forms of automation are advancing at a rapid pace, bringing companies great benefits in terms of efficiency and productivity. Researchers’ assumes a development over the period up to the 2030s in three overlapping waves:

  • Algorithm wave: focuses on the automation of simple computational tasks and the analysis of structured data in areas such as finance, information and communication – the first wave is already under way.
  • Augmentation wave: automation of repeatable tasks such as filling out forms, communicating and exchanging information through dynamic technological support, and statistical analysis of unstructured data in semi-controlled environments such as drones and robots in warehouses – the second wave is happening now but it won’t properly take off until the 2020s.
  • Autonomy wave: these technologies focus on the automation of physical work and manual dexterity, as well as on problem-solving in dynamic real-world situations where rapid response is required, such as in manufacturing and transportation (e.g. driverless vehicles) – this wave is not expected to have a severe impact on labor markets until the 2030s.

Against this backdrop PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry and All India Council for Robotics and Automation (AICRA) setup centre of excellence for MSME sector. It will focus on skill development training in the areas various technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, RPA, ROS, etc. among engineering students and corporate which provide new perspectives and understanding of the present-day business milieu with a network of 1200 Tech Professionals associated with us.

The Centre for excellence will focus on:
