Samsung has set up an artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data engineering lab at the KLE Technological University in Karnataka’s Hubballi.

According to a statement from the company, at the ‘Samsung Student Ecosystem for Engineered Data (SEED) Lab’, students and faculty members at KLE Tech will be able to work on joint research and development projects along with engineers at Samsung R&D Institute, Bangalore (SRI-B) who work in the domains of mobile camera tech, speech and text recognition, and machine learning.

“India is a repository of young Millennials and Gen Z talent. At Samsung, we envision this lab to become a hub of young minds igniting India’s innovation ecosystem, build capabilities among the students to make them industry ready, and also promote industry-academia collaboration. This will further Samsung’s commitment to its vision of #PoweringDigitalIndia," said Dipesh Shah, Managing Director, Samsung R&D Institute, Bangalore.

Collaborative research projects will be open to third and fourth year B.Tech and M.Tech students and Ph.D. scholars at KLE Tech. Students will also be encouraged to publish papers jointly with SRI-B engineers.

According to the statement, Samsung SEED lab is spread over 3,000 sq. ft. and is equipped with facilities such as a special dark room with lighting equipment to conduct experiments on multimedia in varied lighting conditions, devices and accessories, image quality analysis tools, amongst others. It also has backend infrastructure to store, process and archive large volumes of data.

“Today, our world is becoming increasingly data-centric, and along with AI, it continues to transform the way we live, work and do business. The Samsung SEED lab is a great initiative that gives the students the opportunity to learn and work under SRI-B engineers on research projects that address the issues facing the world" said Dr. Ashok Shettar, Vice-Chancellor, KLE Technological University, Hubballi, Karnataka.

All students will receive certificates for their contribution at the end of each project from SRI-B.
