Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence joins the Web Science Trust Network of research labs

It is with extreme pleasure that we can announce a new lab has joined our network. The Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (RBC DSAI), is based at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras and carries out cutting-edge research in Web Science.

RBC DSAI has a variety of interesting research projects:

  • natural language processing and generation, working with text from various social media as well as other sources
  • multi-modal learning with data being derived often from online sources
  • network science and its application to online social media
  • the use of network science with ontologies and linked data.

The Future of Life Institute listed some of RBC DSAI work, on joint representation learning of multi-modal data, as one of the top 25 AI breakthroughs of 2015.
