Hubballi: The District will get a Centre for Excellence in Artificial Intelligence, said IT, Electronics, BT, and Science & Technology Minister Dr. C. N. Ashwath Narayan on Monday October 3. The government is looking for an anchor institution, such as NASSCOM or private industries, to work with local players in setting up the facility, he said.

He said that the Hubballi-Dharwad-Belagavi cluster, established as part of the Karnataka Digital Economy Mission’s Beyond Bengaluru programme, is next to Bengaluru in terms of launching startups.

As many as eight new startups that were part of the said programme have emerged in the region in the last year. The minister said that the possibilities of new startups in the region are high because, in addition to the incubation centres already present in the region, more such facilities are expected to be built at the IIT, IIIT, and VTU. He also noted that the newly established companies have already created 4,000 direct and indirect jobs.

A Global Emerging Technology Center would be established in Belagavi for a cost of Rs 150 crore, the minister had earlier announced while speaking at the Techceleration-2022 convention. He said that Rs. 25 Crore had been given to the Hubballi Cluster Seed Fund to help startups that had progressed to the point of developing products and services at the incubation centres.
