IIT Madras Teams Up with Ericsson for Cutting Edge Responsible AI Research


IIT Madras’ Center for Responsible AI (CERAI) has partnered with Ericsson to do joint research on responsible artificial intelligence. Ericsson has signed an agreement with CeRAI to become a “Platinum Consortium Member” for a period of five years.

Under this agreement, Ericsson Research will support and participate in all research activities at CeRAI. In the Indian ecosystem, it intends to facilitate quick deployment of AI systems. According to the company statement, AI research is of utmost importance to Ericsson as AI algorithms will run future 6G networks autonomously.

“6G and future networks aim to seamlessly blend the physical and digital worlds, enabling immersive AR/VR experiences. While AI-controlled sensors connect humans and machines, ensuring trust, fairness, and privacy compliance Responsible AI practices are essential.

“Our partnership with CERAI at IIT Madras is in line with the Government of India’s vision for the India 6G programme.” At a symposium on responsible AI for future networks held at the institute on Monday, Ericsson research leaders and professors from the institute signed an agreement for partnership for five years. Ericsson Research will support and participate in all research activities of CeRAI.

Experts say AI research is of utmost importance for Ericsson as 6G networks will be operated autonomously by AI algorithms.
B Raveendran, head of faculty at CERAI at IIT Madras, said future networks will provide easy access to high-performance AI systems.

Manu Santhanam, Dean of Industrial Consulting and Sponsored Research at IIT Madras, said, “Research in AI will create the tools to drive businesses of the future. IIT Madras strongly believes in impactful translation work in collaboration with industry, and we are very pleased to We are looking forward to collaborating with Ericsson for cutting-edge research and development in this area.”
