“It will be the first international Gen AI conclave to be held in India. It will be jointly hosted by the state government and IBM in association with the Digital University, Cusat and the Kerala Technological University,” said Rajeeve.

He said the state will organise an international round table on robotics in August. Kochi will host both the programmes. Explaining the steps being taken by the government to improve the infrastructure facilities, he said the government is trying to position Kerala as a frontrunner in the knowledge-based industry and high-tech manufacturing sector. He said the complaints regarding the scarcity of water at Infopark in Kochi will be addressed soon. “Now some IT companies are opting for Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode in place of Kochi due to the water scarcity here. We doubt a situation is being intentionally created to stop IT firms from coming to Kochi,” he said.

State witnessing reverse brain drain: IBM senior VP

Kerala is witnessing a ‘reverse brain drain’ as people who migrated to foreign countries in search of opportunities are coming back because of the high-paying jobs created in the tech industry in the state, said IBM senior vice-president Dinesh Nirmal. He was speaking after receiving the Special Recognition for Business Investment Promotion Award instituted by the Industries Department at Bolgatty Palace in Kochi on Thursday. Industries Minister P Rajeeve presented the award. “Every person who is coming back to the state is contributing to the economy as they are spending on services. The Gen AI Industry in Kerala has brought a change as customers are coming to see the products that are being made here,” said Dinesh Nirmal.
