Tech Mahindra’s collaboration with academics and research institutes will allow the company to create more jobs and create an ecosystem of interns and scholars to push AI and Data Science advances.
This development was revealed during British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s visit to India, where he proposed a new UK-India collaboration on artificial intelligence. The newly announced program intends to boost both countries’ innovation and economy while also leveraging the power of new technology to address global concerns.
MD and CEO of Tech Mahindra, CP Gurnani, said, “Innovations and applications of Artificial intelligence (AI) can significantly transform the productivity and create revenue streams for businesses in the UK. Tech Mahindra aims to bring out the best solutions powered by next-gen technologies for industries to solve specific challenges.”
He further added that they are also committed to investing in the areas where they do business, and programs like these help future technologists in the UK and around the world find work.
Earlier this year, Tech Mahindra partnered with conversational artificial intelligence company Yellow.ai to provide an enhanced experience to its customers. The partnership would help Tech Mahindra to transform enterprise customer experiences with conversational AI.
