Chennai: The Robert Bosch Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (RBC-DSAI) was inaugurated at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) on February 6, 2019. Bosch will invest 20 crores (2.5 million euros) over five years in the center.
The RBC-DSAI will undertake foundational research in many areas of AI and Data Science, namely deep learning, reinforcement learning, network analytics, interpretable machine learning, and domain aware AI. The areas of activity include research projects, knowledge management and dissemination, outreach projects, and setting up collaborative facilities and laboratories.
Applied research will begin in four verticals: manufacturing analytics, financial analytics, smart cities, systems biology and health care.
India is one of four locations of Bosch Center for AI. The center was established across three continents and one of the center’s four locations is in Bengaluru. Two further branches are located in the U.S.A. – in Sunnyvale, California, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – and a third in Renningen, Germany.
Bosch applies AI to optimize processes in manufacturing, engineering, and supply chain management, and to enable intelligent services.
