Uttar Pradesh to Transform Key Cities into AI and IT Centers

The cities scheduled for the AI and IT-based makeover are Varanasi, Prayagraj (Allahabad), Gautam Buddha Nagar (Noida), Kanpur, and Lucknow.

The government of Uttar Pradesh has unveiled a strategy to transform important cities into centers for artificial intelligence and information technology.

The action comes in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement last month from the US that India and the US are at the forefront of developments in AI and that there have been ground-breaking advances. The cities scheduled for the AI and IT-based makeover are Varanasi, Prayagraj (Allahabad), Gautam Buddha Nagar (Noida), Kanpur, and Lucknow.

As part of a larger plan to establish the five cities as future centers for IT and IT Enabled Services (ITeS), Lucknow has been designated as India’s first “AI City.” Nand Gopal Gupta, the industrial development minister for the state of Uttar Pradesh, was quoted as saying that technology and tech leadership would define the future of the world and that UP has made great strides to become a key center of AI, both nationally and internationally.

He said, “AI leadership means leadership of the world and our ‘double engine’ government is turbocharged to lead the tech revolution in the world. The goal of the anticipated AI and IT sector development in these five cities is to accelerate Uttar Pradesh’s transition to a trillion-dollar economy.”

A detailed road map was recently presented to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath by officials. A high-level committee led by the chief secretary has been tasked by the CM with taking action to implement the idea right away. The Lucknow AI hub initiative would offer investors and businesses a whole value chain made up of AI start-ups, data centers, data analytics, AI-based training, and data forensics, among other things.
