NEW DELHI: Samsung India on Wednesday inaugurated a digital academy at IIT Guwahati as part of its efforts to train over 300 people on new-age technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence.

"The Samsung Innovation Lab at IIT Guwahati will train students on Internet of Things (IoT), Embedded Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, helping them learn industry-relevant skills and making them job-ready," a statement said.

Through this partnership with IIT Guwahati, the academy targets to train over 300 students in the next three years on these cutting-edge technologies, it added.

"At Samsung, our aim is to foster a culture of innovation amongst the students and provide them with the best possible infrastructure. We are confident that Samsung Innovation Lab, which is part of our citizenship initiatives, will help students leverage the growing digital technologies market and develop their talent," Samsung India Corporate Vice President Peter Rhee said.

Such initiatives will help bridge the academia-industry gap and foster more collaborations that would be a win-win situation for both, IIT Guwahati Director T G Sitharam said.

"The strong interest and support of the state government will go a long way in extending the expertise of IIT Guwahati and Samsung Innovation Lab to other parts of Assam. It would provide technical opportunities for academic excellence and development," Sitharam added.

The course will be taught over 14 weeks through classroom lectures, assignments and lab room sessions, self-study and mini projects. Extensive tutorials and approach documents will also be provided to students to facilitate practical exercises.

Samsung has so far set up five innovation labs in IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Kharagpur and IIT Roorkee as part of its Samsung Digital Academy programme.
