Boeing Tata Advanced Systems to make Apache fuselage in Hyderabad

first_imgBoeing and Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) on Wednesday formally announced that a centre to manufacture aerostructures for AH-64 Apache helicopter will come up in Hyderabad.The announcement was made by the officials of the two companies in the presence of Telangana’s Information Technology Minister K.T. Rama Rao on the sidelines of suppliers’ meet of Boeing here.The state government agreed to allocate land and provide all other support required for the unit, which is coming up near aerospace Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Adibatla on the outskirts of the city, where TASL already has four joint ventures with global companies.The announcement came as a follow-up to the joint venture the two companies announced last month.Pratyush Kumar, president, Boeing India, said they were making a beginning with manufacture of aerostrucures for Apache and would take this partnership forward to develop advanced systems.The AH-64 Apache is the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter and is used by the US Army and defence forces of other countries. Boeing has delivered more than 2,100 Apaches to customers around the world since 1984, according to the information on the company’s website.Though the state government officials had earlier estimated that the project could entail an investment of about Rs.200 crore, Kumar declined to give any figure. “We don’t make the investment figures public,” he said.”The first step is fuselage manufacturing.

Photo: AFPAt least 17 people died on Tuesday as a fire tore through a budget hotel in Delhi before dawn, in the latest disaster to raise concerns over fire safety in India.The fire broke out at the Hotel Arpit Palace in a congested part of central Delhi, with images showing it engulfing the entire top floor.”We have confirmed with hospital authorities, the toll is now 17 including a child,” Sunil Choudhary, a fire brigade official, told AFP.Local media reports said the woman and the child died as they tried to escape by jumping from a window.G.C. Misra, Delhi fire brigade director, said the blaze had been brought under control and that 35 people were rescued by firefighters in an operation lasting several hours.”There was wooden panelling on corridors because of which people could not use corridors to evacuate,” another fire officer told reporters.Images showed thick smoke and flames billowing out of the top floor of four-storey hotel, popular with budget travellers.Police said they were investigating the cause.The blaze was extinguished in the early hours with the help of at least 25 fire engines, with the top floors being gutted.Fires are common across India because of poor safety standards and lax enforcement of regulations.Activists say builders and landlords often cut corners on safety to save costs and have accused civic authorities of negligence and apathy.Fire disasters are particularly frequent in Mumbai, India’s financial capital where millions live in cramped and dilapidated properties because of high rents.In December, eight people were killed when a fire engulfed a hospital in Mumbai.In 2017, 14 people were killed, also in Mumbai, when a huge blaze tore through a popular restaurant.last_img read more

Microsoft start AI School to teach Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

first_imgThe race for cloud supremacy is getting interesting with every passing day. The three major competitors – Amazon, Google and Microsoft seem to be coming up with fresh and innovative ideas to attract customers, making them try and adopt their cloud offerings. The most recent dice was thrown by Google – when they announced their free Big Data and Machine Learning training courses for the Google Cloud Platform. These courses allowed the students to build intelligent models on the Google cloud using the cloud-powered resources. Microsoft have now followed suit with their own AI School – the promise of which is quite similar: Allowing professionals to build smart solutions for their businesses using the Microsoft AI platform on Azure. AI School: Offering custom learning paths to master Artificial Intelligence Everyone has a different style and pace of learning. Keeping this in mind, Microsoft have segregated their learning material into different levels – beginner, intermediate and advanced. This helps the intermediate and advanced learners pick up the relevant topics they want to skill up in, without having to compulsorily go through the basics – yet giving them the option to do so in case they’re interested. The topic coverage in the AI School is quite interesting as well – from introduction to deep learning and Artificial Intelligence to building custom conversational AI. In the process, the students will be using a myriad of tools such as Azure Cognitive Services and Microsoft Bot framework for pre-trained AI models, Azure Machine Learning for deep learning and machine learning capabilities as well as Visual Studio and Cognitive Toolkit. The students will have the option of working with their favourite programming language as well – from Java, C# and Node.js to Python and JavaScript. The end goal of this program, as Microsoft puts it perfectly, is to empower the developers to use the trending Artificial Intelligence capabilities within their existing applications to make them smarter and more intuitive. All this while leveraging the power of the Microsoft cloud. Google and Microsoft have stepped up, time for Amazon now? Although Amazon does provide training and certifications for Machine Learning and AI, they are yet to launch their own courses to encourage learners to learn these trending technologies from scratch, and adopt AWS to build their own intelligent models. Considering they dominate the cloud market with almost 2/3rds of the market share, this is quite surprising. Another interesting point to note here is that Microsoft and Google have both taken significant steps to contribute to open source and free learning. While Google-acquired Kaggle is a great platform to host machine learning competitions and thereby learn new, interesting things in the AI space, Microsoft’s recent acquisition of GitHub takes them in the similar direction of promoting the open source culture and sharing free knowledge. Is Amazon waiting for a similar acquisition before they take this step in promoting open source learning? We will have to wait and see.last_img read more
