Hyderabad: Australia’s Deakin University and the Indian School of Business (ISB) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for joint research and teaching.

They will collaborate in the areas of research, teaching, student exchange programmes, internationalising the curriculum of business programmes offered by ISB and Deakin Business School, and in development of innovative approaches to meeting international accreditation standards.

Deakin Business School (DBS) dean Michael Ewing and ISB senior associate dean, Faulty and Research, Sridhar Seshadri signed the MoU.

The MoU has been signed for an initial period of three years.

“The faculty have visited each other’s institutions on a few occasions already and we recently successfully piloted a joint, synchronous case study, whereby ISB and DBS students analysed the same case study in real-time,” said Ewing.

According to him, this is an innovative approach to enable authentic cross-cultural interaction for geographically-dispersed students.

“This is a great opportunity for us to expand the frontiers of research globally with a like-minded partner,” said Sridhar Seshadri.

Facebook on Sunday said it will create an independent Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (AI) with an initial grant of $7.5 million.

In collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany, the institute will help advance the growing field of ethical research on new technology and will explore fundamental issues affecting the use and impact of AI.

The enterprise solutions major has integrated SAP CoPilot with the "SAP S/4HANA" Cloud.

“A tectonic shift is happening in AI. Nearly 85 per cent of enterprises globally will use AI in some form or the other by 2020. INT

“The institute will conduct independent, evidence-based research to provide insight and guidance for society, industry, legislators and decision-makers across the private and public sectors,” said Joaquin Quinonero Candela, Director, Applied Machine Learning, at Facebook.

The institute will address issues that affect the use and impact of AI, such as safety, privacy, fairness and transparency.

“At the TUM Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence, we will explore the ethical issues of AI and develop ethical guidelines for the responsible use of the technology in society and the economy,” said Professor Dr Christoph Lutge.

The institute will also benefit from Germany’s position at the forefront of the conversation surrounding ethical frameworks for AI “including the creation of government-led ethical guidelines on autonomous driving” and its work with European institutions on these issues. (IANS)
