Artificial intelligence software creator CognitiveScale is partnering with the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT Hyderabad), a leading university in India, to further advance research and development efforts in artificial intelligence, specifically Responsible AI. This follows the inception of CognitiveScale's Innovation Lab in July 2018, which is focused on incubating solutions globally in forward-looking technology areas.
Cognitive and AI spending is expected to grow to $52.2 billion in 2021, according to IDC. While AI-based automated decision-making systems have accelerated their influence on a global scale, companies face several challenges as they pursue the transformative benefits of enterprise AI. It is crucial to increase efforts toward the creation of transparent, secure and ethical AI systems. Industry-academia collaborations are essential for AI to fully thrive. By sharing resources and talent, industry and academia can work together to fuel innovation at scale in this field.
During the one-year engagement, two IIIT Hyderabad faculty members and two students will work independently on problems defined by CognitiveScale to perform research on machine learning and AI. This will involve developing robust Al solutions that will include key components like 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).
