“There are two types of education: education for a living and education for life. When we study in college, striving to become a doctor, a lawyer, or an engineer, that is education for a living. But education for life requires an understanding of the essential principles of spirituality; it is about gaining a deeper understanding of the world, our minds, our emotions, and ourselves.”
– Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, Chancellor, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham
We at AMMACHI Labs (Amrita MultiModal Applications and Human Computer Interaction) of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, India’s #1 Private University, and Institute of Eminence (IoE), are a multi-disciplinary research and development lab with a focus on technologies for inclusive empowerment through skill development. AMMACHI labs aims to bridge the national skill gap, between a dearth of skilled labor and the lack of skills training infrastructure, developing and utilizing technology enabled learning and teaching solutions to provide vocational and life skills training. We work to strengthen the nation’s economic fiber and contribute to its social stability by empowering individuals with an emphasis on targeting vulnerable populations such as rural women, migrant workers, and at-risk youth.
We believe that excellence in science finds its highest expression of virtue by serving others, especially underserved populations.
Our Fellowship in Cognitive Sciences & Technology utilizes a problem-driven approach to research, by designing, developing and implementing technologies for the purpose of improving teaching and learning outcomes of skills development (both physical and cognitive skills).
