IT giants like Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro are collaborating with academic institutions to drive innovation in emerging technologies, according to recent reports.

On Tuesday, Tata Consultancy Services announced a partnership with the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-Bombay) to develop India’s first Quantum Diamond Microchip Imager. This advanced sensing tool aims to enhance the precision in examining semiconductor chips, reduce chip failures, and improve the energy efficiency of electronic devices, as stated by the company.

Similarly, Wipro has partnered with The Centre for Brain Research at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) this week. This collaboration focuses on leveraging AI, machine learning, and big data analytics to develop technologies that can aid in the prevention and management of long-term health disorders, according to Wipro’s statement.

These collaborations are part of a broader trend of industry-academia partnerships in the tech sector. For instance, businessline reports that NVIDIA is collaborating with the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras for computational brain research. Additionally, Hindustan Times reports that the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee has signed an MoU with Engineers India Limited to promote research and innovation in green technologies.
