We have given a letter to The Honorable Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi Ji dated 2nd October, 2016 and a Proposal to the Shri. Ravi Shankar Prasad, Honorable Minister of Law & Justice and Electronics and Information Technology Government of India and Smt Aruna Sundar Rajan IAS dated 2nd June, 2017 during the Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) "IT/ESDM Industry Interaction" at Cochin.
Proposal for the need of a Vision document / National policy for the future of Robotics & Artificial intelligence (AI) in India - guidelines to prepare a Vision 2050 Project (Robotic Technology), and the necessity for establishing a state of art The Indian Robotics Research Organization (IRRO) & IIRT (Indian Institute of Robotic Technology).
We are witnessing a silent epoch-making transition in the field of Robotics & Artificial intelligence (AI) which will be a decisive factor in the global economy in the near future. It is a fact that the Indian industry is facing a great challenge in the field of Robotic Technology. As per the studies India is expected to have around 730 million internet users by 2020. A Vision document / National policy on Robotics & Artificial intelligence (AI) are needed to promote Research and Development (R&D) in Robotics which will help to bridge the gap between supply and demand. It is also important to constitute a task force comprising of top researchers in the field of robotics and automation and to define a research agenda towards policy and practice.
The world is going ahead with ambitious Mega Project for missions in the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity - Creating a new Era of Humanity. The Technological revolution - Nano Technology, Bio Technology, Information Technology, Cognitive Technology, Genetics and Robotics will allow finding new sources of energy. Humanoid Robots and cyborgs with the help of nano robots may develop manageable matter. The Researches with Android robotics, Anthropomorphic telepresence, Neuroscience, Mind theory, Neuroengineering, Brain-Computer Interfaces, Neuroprosthetics, Neurotransplantation, Long-range forecasting, Future evolution strategy, Evolutionary transhumanism, Ethics, Bionic prostheses, Cybernetic life-extension, Mid-century Singularity, Neo-humanity, Meta-intelligence, Cybernetic immortality, Consciousness, Spiritual development, Science and Spirituality etc are undergoing globally as a Vision.
The Russian Project - Creating a new Era of Humanity has very different, humanitarian goals – it involves technologies that could mark a transition for humanity, with endless benefits in the future. The Project has been successfully on its way with Plan to develop A robotic copy of the human body remotely controlled via BCI in Phase 1 and an Avatar in which a human brain is transplanted at the end of one's life as Phase 11 and An Avatar with an artificial brain in which a human personality is transferred at the end of one's life as Phase 111 and A hologram like Avatar in Phase 1V.
Whereas The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA – the Pentagon?s, United States research arm – announced their own plans on creating a militarized avatar project, serving as a soldiers surrogate on the battlefield.
According to His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, it is crucial to discuss the ethics behind these types of progressive technologies. "We should carry out these experiments with a full sense of responsibility and respect for life that will only benefit humanity, benefit others." "In the last few years, scientists now begin to show an interest about consciousness, as well as brain specialists, neuroscientists, who also begin to show interest about consciousness or mind. I feel that over the next decade's modern science will become more complete"
The Future of Robotics opens up a plethora of opportunities in India. It is a multidisciplinary engineering field. One gets to understand the integration of mechanical, electrical, electronic as well as computer science disciplines in this field. The industries across a range of sectors such as automotive, atomic energy, defence, space, metals, textiles and manufacturing use Robotic technologies very extensively even operation theatres to various streams to augment the quality of life. The countries like Japan and America have been using robots industrially. Robotics is fast entering into the industrial space in India, Robots are required everywhere to improve productivity. Robotics is best suited for industrial automation (manufacturing, packaging, assembly etc.) Due to globalization and high industrialization, Robotics in India is poised for a bright future. Instead of being an Importer we need to have an in-house full fledged Technological monopoly is what I recommend.
Considering that India is already a manufacturing hub catering to the whole world, the use of robots in every aspect of manufacturing will provide the necessary edge to companies. As Robotics solutions are a lot of employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in this field. We need to facilitate to set up businesses that can supply "Make in India" components and hardware to the existing and upcoming companies involved in Robotics. The future of Robotics in India seems certainly bright and promising!
However many developing nations are still to adopt robotics and automation in a big way. Among the many challenges that plague the Robotics field in India, the primary ones among them have to do with.
- The cost of adopting Robotic technology is very high due to the cost of procuring imported hardware components.
- The Availability of skilled talent that specializes in the many disciplines such as electrical, embedded, software and mechanical that make up Robotics and retaining quality talent.
- The scarcity of skilled Training faculty to teach the subject from an academic perspective.
- Robotics as a subject is not taught well to the engineering students the absence of hardware companies that can cater to them and the dependence on countries like China, USA and Europe to procure the necessary components as a major stumbling block.
- We are lagging in building a consortium of organizations & Lack of government initiatives.
The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) connects the world of robotics around the globe The federation represents over 50 members from more than 20 countries The IFR statistical department is the primary global resource for data on robotics. The IFR was established in 1987.
After evaluating the above statistics by The International Federation of Robotics (IFR). it is time for us to evaluate where we stand in the field of Robotics Research. Whereas countries like USA, Russia, Japan, Korea, China, European Countries etc are far ahead in the field of Robotic Science. We are still in the very premature stage; we have pioneered the PC revolution, then the mobile revolution and we are now convinced that going forward it is inevitable that robotics will become an important aspect of our lives.
Increasing need of Industrial and Service Robots in all industries
- Continued strong demand from the industry and Service sector.
- Increasing high volume order from the industry and Service sector.
- The General Industry is more and more inclined to use robots.
- Small and medium sized companies and service sectors will increasingly use robots.
Robots improve productivity when they are applied to tasks that they perform more efficiently and to a higher and more consistent level of quality than humans. Productivity gains due to robotics and automation are important not just at the company level but also for both industry and national competitiveness.
The Impact of Robots on Productivity, Employment and Jobs The concern about the future of employment and jobs is causing widespread debate and political shifts.
- Robots increase productivity and competitiveness
- Increased productivity can lead to increased demand, creating new job opportunities.
- Automation has led overall to an increase in labour demand and positive impact on wages.
- Robots complement and augment labour: The future will be robots and humans working together.
Human-robot collaboration will have a breakthrough in this period. Compact and easy-to-use collaborative robots will drive the market in the coming years. Energy -efficiency and using new materials require continued retooling of production "Collaborative robots" (or "cobots") due to their ability to work side-by-side with employees, these lightweight, flexible tools can be easily moved and reprogrammed to solve new tasks.
User-friendly, affordable cobots are lowering the automation barrier tremendously, enabling automation in areas previously considered too complex or costly.
We need something similar to "The Skill India" campaign launched by Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi Ji which aim to train over 40 crore (400 million) people in India in different skills by 2022 & Smt. Aruna Sundararajan IAS, Pioneering work in mass e-literacy in Kerala through "Akshaya programme". Akshaya started as an e-literacy (computer skills) project in Kerala which ultimately change the Digital India Outlook of the state. We need a similar mission for the successful implementing the IIRT (Indian Institute of Robotic Technology).
India's pioneering initiatives in using information technology and mentioned how India has the potential to be a leader in development through technology. The National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), originally known as the National Technical Facilities Organisation (NTFO), is a highly specialised technical intelligence gathering agency. The road-map for constitution of the National Technical Facilities Organisation was prepared by Dr A P J Abdul Kalam in October 2001 when he was the Principal Scientific Adviser as per the sources. Similarly we need to prepare a road-map for constitution of The Indian Robotics Research Organization (IRRO) & IIRT (Indian Institute of Robotic Technology).
