Accenture and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru are collaborating to undertake research and development in cloud continuum and neuromorphic computing at the newly established Accenture Centre for Advanced Computing.
“Today’s AI systems can interpret spoken commands, recognise objects and gestures, navigate, plan and make decisions, which are driving demand for even more powerful AI-driven experiences. The next wave of smart products and environments will require more advanced computing technologies like quantum and neuromorphic or brain-inspired computing to provide sustainable and responsive intelligence and enhance end-user experience across industries,” said Mahesh Zurale, senior managing director, lead – Advanced Technology Centers in India, Accenture.
