Industry and academia will have to work together. Startups have to be promoted in the country and IITs can play an important role in this. Professor Behera said, “IIT Mandi is at the forefront of human-computer interaction and a lot of work is being done in this direction. We are shifting our focus beyond theoretical research to practical marketable products. In collaboration with a consortium of researchers, we are working on four major projects, including innovative artificial intelligence schemes, bio-manufacturing for printable food and a made-in-India air ambulance.
These projects of ours reflect our commitments towards solving the real problems of our lives. Apart from this, we are also working on many other projects like non-invasive diabetic diagnosis, smart yoga mats etc. With the strong participation of youth, the success rate of the Technology Innovation Hub is 100 percent, as more than 180 students have been trained so far and all have secured jobs. I am confident that today’s program will play an important role in turning visionary ideas into reality in the times to come.
