Ericsson signed an agreement to partner with CeRAI as a ‘platinum consortium member’ for five years. IIT Madras said the CeRAI is an interdisciplinary research centre that aims to become a premier research centre for fundamental and applied research in responsible AI. Research in the field is of high importance to Ericsson as the 6G networks in communication will be autonomously driven by AI algorithms, it added.

Manu Santhanam, dean of the Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research, IIT Madras, said, “Research on AI will produce the tools for operating tomorrow’s businesses. IIT Madras strongly believes in impactful translational work in collaboration with the industry, and we are very happy to collaborate with Ericsson to do cutting edge research and development in the field.”
