One of the largest IT Tech giant company, Wipro has now collaborated with the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur to jointly carry out the applied research on Artificial Intelligence and 5G.
The research outcomes from this strategic partnership would be used by the Wipro to develop the solutions for its customers, across the different verticals while on the other hand, IIT Kharagpur would also going to benefit from the commercialization of the joint research insights and the Wipro real-world industry experience, according to the report.
IIT Kharagpur and Wipro will jointly take up the applied research projects on the challenges which are related to the design, planning, and operations of 5G networks and cognitive information processing for the automation of these industrial process and 5G use cases.
“The two organizations will focus on AI research applicable in the healthcare, education and retail sectors as well as in domains such as climate change and cybersecurity. In addition, subject matter experts from Wipro and IIT Kharagpur will promote knowledge sharing through guest lectures, workshops, and seminars on 5G and AI,” said Wipro in the release.
“AI and 5G are critical technologies poised to create opportunities that will significantly enhance customer experiences across industry verticals. We hope to bring together the synergies of Wipro’s rich industry technology expertise and understanding of domain-specific business challenges with IIT Kharagpur’s distinguished research capabilities to co-innovate and develop next-generation AI and 5G solutions that will benefit both our clients as well as the industry at large,” K R Sanjiv, chief technology officer, Wipro, was quoted saying.
Just like these may of the IT service firms have in the past collaborated to work complex technology research. TCS in the year 2017 and IIT Kharagpur also collaborated to create a research ecosystem for the integrated computational materials engineering.
