Boeing has launched an innovation competition which encourages start-ups to propose solutions to tackle complex challenges in the areas of autonomous and unmanned systems, and artificial intelligence.

The US-based aerospace giant launched the ‘Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge 1.0’ in collaboration with T-Hub, an incubator for start-ups promoted by the Telangana government.

The challenge is aimed at attracting the best Indian start-ups to propose disruptive solutions to tackle complex challenges in the areas of autonomous and unmanned systems, advanced manufacturing, industrial IOT and automation, analytics, AI and machine learning (ML), a Boeing said in a statement here.

Entrepreneurs will be invited to present ideas on select themes that include drones and data application, factory productivity, supply chain, aircraft maintenance and services, passenger experience, defence, commercial and industrial uses, it said.

The 22-week-long challenge that kicked off last week and is open to start-ups across the country. The winners of the contest will have an opportunity to engage with Boeing on future partnerships.
