Centre of Excellence in Emerging Technologies (AR/VR) in Imphal
Emerging technologies refer to technologies that are being developed and that have a capacity to change the existing business and social conditions. These technologies are marked by features as novelty of approach, cross-technology approaches, prominent impact, radical changes etc. Such technologies have the potential to accelerate the development of select regions and to benefit the geographies significantly.
Emerging technologies include a variety of technologies such as educational technology, information technology, nanotechnology, biotechnology, cognitive science, robotics, and artificial intelligence. New technological fields may result from the technological convergence of different systems evolving towards similar goals. Convergence brings previously separate technologies such as voice (and telephony features), data (and productivity applications) and video together so that they share resources and interact with each other, creating new efficiencies.
In the present proposal, the CoE at Imphal will concentrate on the development of emerging technologies (AR/VR) in the areas of educational technology, virtual reality, augmented reality, gaming and animation etc. The idea is to develop new approaches in areas of relatively fast growing technology having the potential to exert a considerable impact on the socio-economic conditions of the state and of the NE Region.
