Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Kharagpur) and Ericsson will carry out joint research in 6G technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), edge compute and radio. As part of the collaboration, IIT Kharagpur and Ericssom signed two agreements, which will allow researchers from both organisations to collaborate towards developing novel AI and distributed compute technology towards 6G research. AI and compute research is instrumental to Ericsson’s 6G networks as the compute offload needs to be managed dynamically at edge and the policies would primarily be driven by AI. These themes of research are well aligned with IIT Kharagpurand both organisations view this partnership as a way to push the boundaries of fundamental and applied research in the radio domain. On the occasion, a symposium on radio and network research was organised at GS SanyalSchool of Telecommunications (GSSST). Leaders and academicians from Ericsson Research and IIT Kharagpur participated to discuss the developments and advancements for the future of networks and communication.IIT Kharagpur director Virendra Kumar Tewari said.
