BT has tied up with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for opening a new collaborative research centre in Bengaluru (Bangalore).
The centre will focus on the development of edge artificial intelligence (AI), mobility and software engineering technologies.
The new BT India Research Centre (BTIRC) will join BT’s network of collaborative research facilities around the globe, including centres in Northern Ireland, China, the US, and the UAE. This global innovation network is centred on the BT Labs at Adastral Park, Suffolk, UK, one of the world’s leading centres for telecommunications research.
The BTIRC will operate multiple research tracks, focused primarily on artificial intelligence, mobility and software engineering technologies for use in BT’s strategic programs, products and services. Future areas will include cybersecurity innovations.
Tim Whitley, managing director for Research at BT, said: “The technologies developing here, in fields such as AI, mobile and software engineering will accelerate the delivery of exciting innovations to our customers.”
