New data science and artificial intelligence research center aims to improve AI for India context - The Next Silicon Valley


A new research center is to be established in India to undertake foundational research in many areas of data science and artificial intelligence (AI) applicable in the Indian context, and create societal impact through multidisciplinary interactions with government, academic, research and industrial collaborators. Its activity will include research projects, knowledge management and dissemination, developing prototypes, outreach projects, and setting up collaborative facilities and laboratories among others. The objective is to advance scientific innovation for societal benefit. Several technologies currently require large datasets to improve their accuracy and to adapt these technologies for the Indian context. There are basic issues in the way data is collected and shared; these need to be solved in a collective and open-sourced manner.

Artificial intelligence: Bosch and University of Amsterdam to cooperate closely


Amsterdam, Netherlands/Stuttgart, Germany – Artificial intelligence is poised to fundamentally change the world: in the future, machines will be capable of autonomously learning from experience and acting on this basis. The foundation for this is deep learning. In the future, the University of Amsterdam and Bosch will cooperate closely in this field. To this end, the two partners have announced a research alliance in Amsterdam. Known as Delta Lab ("Deep Learning Technologies Amsterdam"), the alliance aims to promote regular professional exchange and knowledge transfer.

Cyber Valley: Bosch establishes an endowed chair for machine learning


Stuttgart, Germany – Germany is getting its first Cyber Valley: to drive forward research in Baden-Württemberg on artificial intelligence, Bosch and partners from politics, business, and science are pooling their strengths in a new initiative. Modeled after Silicon Valley, Cyber Valley's aim is to translate findings from basic research into concrete industrial applications. "Machine learning and artificial intelligence are key competencies in shaping the connected world," said Bosch CEO Dr. Volkmar Denner at the Cyber Valley kickoff in Stuttgart. "In the international competition for innovation, Germany should not sit back and allow major IT companies from abroad to dominate these areas." Bosch is supporting the Cyber Valley venture to the tune of some seven million euros.
