During the one-year engagement, CognitiveScale will let two faculty members and two students of IIIT Hyderabad research independently on Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
US-based CognitiveScale, an expert in Augmented Intelligence software and Responsible Artificial Intelligence (AI), has partnered with the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT Hyderabad) to work on advanced research and development efforts in artificial intelligence, specifically Responsible AI.
In July 2018, the company started an innovation lab to focus on incubating solutions in the field of technology and the collaboration with the premier institute is a part of it.
“Not only will this partnership provide a platform for us to engage with a leading academic institution, but it will also allow us to harness advanced research to help inform our offerings and further build functionality around Responsible AI,” a Hyderabad-based daily newspaper quoted Pankaj Vaish, General Manager, CognitiveScale India.
Focus on AI /ML solutions
During the one-year engagement, CognitiveScale will let two faculty members and two students of IIIT Hyderabad research independently on Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). They will also work on AI solutions that will include detecting adversarial data or responses, deep learning-specific solutions for natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision, and explainable Al approaches to adversarial machine learning (ML).
Dr PJ Narayanan, Director, IIIT Hyderabad, has welcomed the CognitiveScale’s partnership to work on advanced technologies. “IIIT Hyderabad is proud to have established various collaboration and co-innovation models involving significant national and multinational companies across the industry that are working on the social impact of AI,” he said.
According to International Data Corporation, Cognitive and AI spending is expected to grow to $52.2 billion in 2021. AI-based automated decision-making systems have accelerated their influence on a global scale, the market research firm said.
