Nasscom, Microsoft join hands to promote AI in key sectors


New Delhi: Industry body, the National Association of Software and Service Companies (Nasscom) and Microsoft have join hands to launch a new AI Gamechangers programme.

The move is aimed at boosting the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in India and to develop and promote the AI programme to accelerate the adoption of AI across key sectors.

According to Nasscom President Debjani Ghosh the move is expected AI to unlock $500 billion of value to India’s GDP by 2025.

“Through this programme, we aim to spotlight some of the leading AI-based innovations in the country,” she added.

The programme aims to serve as a platform for startups, enterprises, academia, governments, and NGOs to showcase their AI-based products and solutions.

Microsoft India President Anant Maheshwari said the data and AI are driving transformation at scale across industries and offer a tremendous opportunity to transform public infrastructure and solve some of the most critical issues facing the country today.

The nomination window will be open from March 4-April 16, followed by screening and final presentations.
It will recognise innovators for their successful AI implementation at Nasscom’s virtual ‘Xperience AI Summit’, one of the largest AI event in India, in July.
