CA Technologies has joined hands with IIIT-Hyderabad for setting up a Co-innovation Lab within IIIT-Hyderabad’s campus. Engineers at CA Technologies would share ideas and work along with IIIT-Hyderabad’s research lab to come up with new technology prototypes.
What is in Agreement
According to the agreement, engineers of CA technologies and researchers of IIIT-Hyderabad will collaborate for applied research projects and the projects will include next generation interfaces such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML).
Aim is to fortify research
Surya Panditi who is senior vice-president and general manager at CA Technologies said that, “We aim to combine the strengths of research with industry knowledge for significant breakthroughs in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. This partnership is another step in our relentless focus on removing the barriers between ideas and outcomes, while deepening our commitment to actively engage with the academia”.
Effect of the partnership
IIIT-Hyderabad is famous for implementing cutting edge technology in research. This partnership is expected to strengthen institute’s vision of ‘search for knowledge’ while it is smartly connecting with industries.
The partnership is equally beneficial for both parties where IIIT-Hyderabad would gain by receiving quality content for publishing in science journals whereas CA Technologies would receive reference models and prototypes which could be adopted for faster development.
Benefit for research and industry
Director at IIIT-Hyderabad, P.J. Narayanan said that, “This co-innovation initiative will benefit both research and the industry. We believe that the research being done at IIIT-Hyderabad can be productised and will bring research from labs closer to real world problems that the industry is solving”.
