Apollo Tyres has opened its Digital Innovation Hub in London. The centre will use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies to solve complex manufacturing problems, the company said.  

The announcement comes at a time when UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is on a two-day visit to India.

Johnson said, “Trade and investment between the UK and India are creating good jobs and sustaining livelihoods in both of our countries. I’m very pleased that Apollo Tyres has decided to join the legions of Indian companies investing in the UK, boosting our technology sector and driving economic growth.”
