Cognitive Computing

Mphasis CoE for Cognitive Computing has been created at IIITB to co-create open source IP assets to solve social and enterprise problems through applied research.

The work of Mphasis  CoE is categorized in three verticals : Accessibility, Governance and Education. For undertaking such work, IIITB has an ecosystem in terms of three research centers : eHealth, Public Policy and Digital Society and three research labs : Multimodal Perception lab, Web Science lab and Software Engineering lab. Three research goals are very well defined focusing on enterprise — Cognitive Computing & Accessibility (Information and Communication); Cognitive Computing & Security (Physical and digital); and Cognitive Computing & Education (Precision Learning).

These research goals are now integrated with currently existing research labs/ domain research centres within IIITB. The goals have started leveraging the expertise of faculty and researchers in those labs / centres to accelerate the pace of the development of the current Mphasis CoE activities. Since last one year this ecosystem had been engaged in the activities of Mphasis CoE by undertaking research projects, and conducting workshops, conferences, hackathons etc..
