Private lender HDFC Bank yesterday launched IRA (Intelligent Robotic Assistant) a `humanoid', which will assist customers at the branches. The robot will be unveiled in the next 12 days at a local branch.

IRA was developed  in association with Kochi-based Asimov Robotics. Nitin Chugh, Country Head, Digital Banking, HDFC Bank refused to share more details on the tasks the robot would carry out. He only said it will not replace jobs done by humans.

HDFC Bank yesterday also announced the launch of the 2nd edition of its Digital Innovation Summit. The Summit is a platform for start-ups to showcase their innovations aimed at powering the bank’s next phase of growth.

“The bank is specifically looking for solutions that can be used for rural operations, as a large part of its customer base is there,” said Chugh.

Chugh said the bank is specifically looking for solutions that can be used for rural operations, as a large part of its customer base is there. Internet of Things, virtual reality and blockchain technologies are other areas where the bank will be looking for solutions from the participating start-ups, he said.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Intense work activity will take its toll. Keep your cool and control outbursts. You can earn more respect and confidence by being tolerant. Occupy yourself with day-to-day work as anything new you try could face snags. At leisure do something that you enjoy. The frosty atmosphere is something you are not used to but be tolerant for the sake of your beloved who has in the past stood through thick and thin with you.
