Fujitsu taps India’s AI talent with new research centre in Bengaluru

The company aims to boost the number of its researchers in the country to 50 by 2024

Fujitsu has launched a new AI research centre in Bengaluru after it identified India as being a leader in AI talent.

The centre, Fujitsu Research of India Private Limited (FRIPL), is the latest addition to the company’s global R&D network and will focus on research and development into AI and machine learning technologies as well as quantum software. It was established on 1 April but only revealed yesterday.

FRIPL will work with the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad to discover causal relationships with higher accuracy. It will also work with the Indian Institute of Science to automatically generate AI through autonomous training in response to various environmental changes.

Fujitsu aims to continue to hire talent in India focused on AI and quantum software technologies, which will be the focus of the centre. It also wants to boost the number of its researchers to 50 by 2024.

“As one of the world’s leading technology companies, Fujitsu plays a key role in driving innovation, and we will harness technologies like AI and quantum to contribute to solutions to these issues,” said Vivek Mahajan, chief technology officer at Fujitsu. “These efforts require access to top talent

“Strengthening our presence in India will allow us to tap into the enormous potential offered by world-class researchers with local institutions and universities that drive global software technology development,” he underlined. “We look forward to conducting more agile and challenging joint research together to deliver a more sustainable future for humanity.”

Fujitsu’s work with the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad will see Fujitsu’s AI for scientific discovery for high-speed discovery of cause-and-effect relationships between large volumes of data combined with the university’s expertise in geometric statistical theory. It aims to help researchers extract complicated casualties that couldn't be processed with existing technologies to discover causal relationships with high accuracy from a wide range of data. The pair hope to provide an effective tool for discovery and contribute to a range of fields such as drug discovery and new material development.

With the Indian Institute of Science, the pair will combine Fujitsu’s knowledge in adaptive machine learning with the institute’s research on advanced deep learning to conduct research and development on an automatic deep learning model generation method that’s able to make highly accurate predictions without trial and error. The two organisations hope to produce an AI that can be applied in areas that require constant responses to environmental changes, including automated operation of large-scale systems and management decision support.
