CSTEP has a history of working on security-related issues. CSTEP's chairman and founder, Dr Arunachalam, was the head of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister (1982 - 1992). He was instrumental in laying the foundation of CAIR (Centre of AI and Robotics) at DRDO. Taking that legacy forward, CSTEP has embarked on a series of initiatives that incorporate AI into various activities. These include a platform for decision-making disaster-management authorities (Living Lab) and AI-based supply chain and logistics management for the Indian Navy (SORIN). We are also exploring next-generation AI possibilities.
