Fujitsu India, in a statement, said the number of its researchers will reach 50 by fiscal 2024. The Group will expand its research fields into security and other areas. It will also conduct software R&D in collaboration with Fujitsu's global network of research centres in areas including Japan, Europe, and the United States to create software for global distribution, the company said in a statement.

Fujitsu, Inria team up for Artificial Intelligence co-creation program - ET CIO


Munich: Fujitsu has embarked on a long-term research and co-creation program with the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria). Just one year after the start of their partnership, the two organizations have formally committed to even closer collaboration, reflecting Fujitsu's commitment to driving digital innovation in France. This new program combines Inria's expertise in AI-focused research and development with Fujitsu's technology. A joint team comprising engineers from Fujitsu in Japan and Inria will work closely together, focused on developing new Artificial Intelligence and machine learning techniques by leveraging advanced mathematics and computing. Artificial intelligence will be deployed to interpret IoT data, to generate insights for customers.

Using AI to Achieve Earlier Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer


In this interview, we talk to Takayuki Baba from Fujitsu Research about ongoing research using artificial intelligence to achieve earlier diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. I am Takayuki Baba, and I am researching medical image diagnosis support technology as a "converging technology" that combines image analysis technology and medical science at Fujitsu Research. Converging technologies combine two or more different social sciences and technology areas to achieve a specific goal and represent a major focus of Fujitsu's R & D. Fujitsu Research has a track record in the research and development of technologies for the detection of multiple types of lesions on computed tomography (CT) images with AI and the retrieval of past CT images with a similar distribution of lesions, which are used in medical diagnostic imaging support technologies to help physicians make diagnoses. Fujitsu and the Southern Tohoku General Hospital have started joint research with Fujitsu Japan Limited and FCOM CORPORATION on AI technology for detecting pancreatic cancer from non-contrast CT images through FCOM, which has been supporting the medical system of Southern Tohoku General Hospital. The survival rate for pancreatic cancer is said to be low, as it is often found when it has already progressed to a state that is difficult to treat.

Fujitsu launches artificial intelligence offshoot at Munich Forum


The announcement was one of several at the Fujitsu Forum in Munich to feature AI developments. Fujitsu Intelligence Technology brings together the company's AI work in Japan and around the world to run it from Vancouver, Canada. The area has many research institutions such as the University of Toronto engaged in AI and quantum computing research, as well as startup technology companies. The government there is pushing the country towards AI. "In Vancouver and across British Columbia, Fujitsu will have the opportunity to collaborate with our state-of-the-art universities and research facilities to discover new ways that artificial intelligence can help solve local and global challenges," said John Horgan, Premier of the Province of British Columbia.
