The signing of the MoU took place at the company’s office in the presence of deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, Sanjay Gupta, country head and vice president of Google India, and state chief secretary Nitin Kareer.
The government of Maharashtra has signed an agreement with Google to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) in various sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, and education. The memorandum was signed at Google’s office in the presence of the deputy chief minister, country head and vice president of Google India, and the state chief secretary.
The deputy CM mentioned that AI is transforming lives and businesses and expressed the government’s plans to establish a center of excellence in Nagpur. He emphasized the importance of using technology to positively impact governance and improve service delivery.
Mr. Fadnavis stated that Google and the state government will collaborate on seven different aspects, one of which is focused on “agricultural sustainability.”
He emphasized the significance of sustainability in agriculture, as climate change factors like unpredictable rainfall and droughts have become localized problems. To address these concerns, the government places significant importance on cultivating predictability and sustainability in the agricultural sector.
According to Mr. Fadnavis, Google’s creation of platforms and applications can bring sustainability and predictability to agriculture, reducing agricultural distress. This collaboration will also put Pune on the global map in terms of startups, particularly in the agricultural field. The government will also work with Google to bring healthcare to underserved populations, using technology to bridge the gap in access to trained doctors and provide quality healthcare to everyone.
According to the Chief Minister, Mr. Fadnavis, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has established a delivery system based on technology. As a result, government initiatives are now reaching the most marginalized individuals in society, and 25 crore people have been lifted out of poverty. The Chief Minister also expressed his belief that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) will contribute to the development of an ecosystem.
The company’s press release stated that the Maharashtra government will be able to utilize Google’s AI knowledge to explore new opportunities in the fields of land record management, disease detection, urban environment resilience, and AI skill enhancement, among other areas.
