Wipro, IISc to jointly innovate in robotics, 5G

Wipro announced a collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science to carry out advanced applied research in the autonomous systems, fifth-generation telecom (5G), and robotics.

The company announced that both the organizations have jointly set up the Wipro IISc Research and Innovation Network (WIRIN), a hybrid industry-academic collaboration unit. The newly formed network aimed at driving idea discovery, innovation and research in product design and technology.

Executive Opinion

Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Abidali Z. Neemuchwala, Wipro Limited said, "We are excited to collaborate with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, one of the most prestigious research institutes in the world, to develop innovative solutions for autonomous systems, robotics, and 5G. This is a significant step towards strengthening our position to be at the forefront of these transformative technologies."

Director of IISc Bangalore, Anurag Kumar,   said “IISc believes collaboration between academia and the industry is a great way of solving challenging real-world problems. We welcome and thank Wipro for supporting this high-impact, collaborative research, and innovation initiative to solve complex problems in autonomous vehicular systems, robotics, and 5G. We are confident that the strong technology capabilities and capable talent from both organizations will come together to make notable strides in these domains,”

The outcome of the Strategic Partnership

A group of senior’s research staff and professors from the IISc will be part of the WIRIN. The Wipro's developers, architects, and researchers from the robotics, 5G and autonomous system domain will be also part of the team at the WIRIN, the announcement says.

The research and development of cutting-edge technologies in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Visual Computing, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and  Vehicle-to-everything communication (V2X) will be a focus. Both parties will benefit from the collaboration. IISc will advance in their research goals and commercialization of the research outcomes. Wipro will leverage the learnings and insights from the research for their customers.

IISc had revealed that it would offer the master’s in technology course in Artificial Intelligence by the starting of this year.

Last year in November, technology service provider Mindtree has tied up with the IISc to advance research in the Artificial Intelligence.

Early this year, Wipro has also setup Chair for Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia. The partnership seeks to extend Artificial Intelligence (AI) research to Australian and the ASEAN region enterprises.
