This Monday, e-commerce giant Amazon announced that they will be opening a consumer robotics software development centre in our backyard.
Story so far: Amazon has been looking for a spot to open a robotics centre that assists their international robotics division at the company. On Monday, we learnt that they found the spot right here in Bengaluru.
- The aim is to collaborate efforts to build consumer solutions that help the world.
Immediate projects: Last year, Amazon launched their first robot – Astro. It brings together advances in artificial intelligence, computer vision, sensor technology, and voice and edge computing. All of this to help customers with monitoring their homes and keeping their social lives in check.
- The idea is to work on projects like this and improve their range of products that focus on customer convenience and satisfaction.
Stating specifics: Amazon will open the new site on 2 June over a virtual event. Company executives even said that India was the perfect place to open this site due to us being an “innovation hub”.
