Samsung India to collaborate with students on 5G, AI, and IoT development


Last updated: July 24th, 2020 at 10:40 UTC+01:00

Similar to its Industry-Academia program in South Korea, Samsung has announced an Industry-Academia collaboration program in India. The company hopes to stimulate the innovation ecosystem in India by helping students build capabilities to meet industry needs. The South Korean tech giant hopes to improve 5G, AI, and IoT technologies with the help of its new program.

The collaboration program is called Samsung PRISM (Preparing and Inspiring Student Minds), and it will be run by Samsung R&D Institute Bangalore (SRI-B), which is the company’s largest R&D center outside South Korea. It will collaborate with the top engineering colleges across India for the program, and MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) have been signed with ten engineering colleges already. More colleges will be added to the program over the next few months.

Samsung will give research and development projects to faculty and students at the selected colleges, and they would need to be executed over four to six months. Students will get to work on cutting-edge technologies such as 5G, AI (Artificial Intelligence), connected devices, IoT (Internet of Things), ML (Machine Learning), and vision technologies. Students will be encouraged to publish papers and file patents jointly with Samsung.

The company had initially started a pilot project for Samsung PRISM last year, and 150 teams worked on R&D projects such as handwriting recognition for Indian languages and AI-based Indian language translation. Students also worked on technologies to improve video quality in low-light conditions and intelligent navigation via in-home object recognition.

This year, Samsung has shortlisted 46 teams so far for their exceptional work and they have received rewards, too. All the teams will be awarded certificates by SRI-B on the completion of projects. SRI-B focuses on technologies like AI, AR, camera, IoT, memory, mobile payments, ML, multimedia, networks, NLP, and web services. So far, it has filed over 2,900 patents in India.

Dipesh Shah, Managing Director, Samsung R&D Institute Bangalore, said: “Samsung PRISM program is a testimony to our mission of transforming people’s lives with meaningful innovations. This program will draw from the strength of our academia and engineering students’ community, which undoubtedly is the best in the world. Giving them an opportunity to work with Samsung, and making them industry-ready will be a step in the right direction towards Atmanirbhar Bharat.
