Google has introduced a 'Google Developers Launchpad Studio' to empower start-ups globally, including from India, which are working in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).
It will provide tailored technical, product and investment support to the startups, all in one place, Google said on Thursday. "Innovation is open to everyone, worldwide. With this global programme, we now have an important opportunity to support entrepreneurs everywhere in the world who are aiming to use AI to solve for the biggest challenges," said Yossi Matias, Vice President of Engineering, Google.
From working with dynamic startups such as teams applying AI technology to solving transportation problems in Israel, improving tele-medicine in Brazil and optimising online retail in India, Google has learnt that these startups require specialised services to help them scale. "Whether you're a 3-person team or an established post-Series B startup applying AI/ML to your product offering, we want to start connecting with you. Applications to join Launchpad Studio are now open," posted Roy Glasberg, Global Lead, Google Developers Launchpad.
The global headquarters of 'Launchpad Studio' will be in San Francisco at Launchpad Space, with events and activities taking place in Tel Aviv and New York. "We plan to expand our activities and events to Toronto, London, Bangalore, and Singapore soon," Glasberg added.
