“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 added.

The CoE is the outcome of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Tech Mahindra and CET which outlines the government’s objective to upskill young students by familiarizing them with new-age technologies like AI and equipping them with the knowledge of applying these technologies in everyday life.

The initiative is aimed at fostering a growth ecosystem that will positively impact the economy and lives of people in Odisha.

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, public service organisations, etc.
