Emerging Technologies

The Government of Andhra Pradesh puts due emphasis on developing and adopting emerging technologies in the State for three reasons: (1) to transform the State to an efficiency-driven and later innovation-driven economy, (2) to achieve rapid productivity growth, and (3) to attract high-tech investments to the State. As one of the first steps, a long-list of 100+ emerging technologies has been drafted, from which a short-list of 5-10 technologies will be selected for promotion. Furthermore, the strategies and roadmap, and the departments responsible to drive them across three verticals of technology adoption and development - adoption of emerging technologies in governance, fostering adoption of emerging technologies in the state economy, and fostering development of emerging technologies, have been identified. Additionally, a monitoring framework with 4 goals, 11 targets, and 22 indicators has been designed to track progress in these areas.
