Hyderabad: The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) and Agastya International Foundation have joined hands to enhance learning and training of economically disadvantaged school children. They will identify problems in the grassroots that can be addressed by emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, language technologies and computer vision.
The objective is to enable those on the wrong side of the digital divide by leveraging cutting-edge research. Set under the aegis of the Raj Reddy Centre on Technology in Service of Society at IIIT-H, the centre is an initiative of IIIT-H to enable research and emerging technology-led solutions for grassroots education and public health.
The centre will pursue two broad directions for high societal impact – innovations in rural education and innovation in healthcare for the bottom of the pyramid, a press release said.
Prof Ramesh Loganathan, Chairman, outreach committee, said: “IIIT-H has always had social good as a key outcome of all research from the institute. This collaboration with Agastya Foundation and Navam makes this possible in a very fulfilling way.”
K Thiagarajan, COO, Agastya International Foundation, said the initiative collaboration with IIIT-H will help increase digital reach and richness manifold.
