In the Indian city of Jaipur in the state of Rajasthan, a new centre focusing on artificial intelligence, robotics and cybernetics is about to be named after the Czech scientist Vladimír Mařík. This new facility will be an important part of the cooperation between India and the Czech Republic, including student and researcher exchanges and joint scientific projects.

The first concrete project under this cooperation will be research in the field of biomedicine and robotics for industrial applications. Professor Vladimír Mařík, scientific director of the Czech Institute for Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC), has been asked to help build a similar institution at the private medical university NIMS (National Institute of Medical Sciences) in Jaipur.

The foundation stone for this centre was laid in March last year, and it is scheduled for completion and official opening this summer. An exchange of researchers between the two sides is expected as early as this year, which will be the first step towards mutual research and development in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics and cybernetics.

Vladimír Mařík sees this cooperation as an opportunity to open a path for the Czech engineering community to India, which is developing rapidly technologically and economically. India has a very good reputation in fields such as software engineering and artificial intelligence, and this cooperation can bring mutual benefits to both countries.
