Xerox takes Open Innovation route to increase cooperation with Indian researchers. Research activities at the India Innovation Hub have two core focus areas. The first of these aims at exploring and developing innovative document management solutions for emerging markets by bringing Xerox’s world-class expertise in imaging, smart document management, linguistics, and ethnography to address locally relevant problems. Projects under this theme range from modeling and analysis of document supply chains, multilingual technologies, mobile applications, and rural technology initiatives.
An equally important focus is on leveraging the latest technologies and paradigms, such as cloud and web computing, human computation, social networks and computational economics, to advance innovation in solutions and services delivery for Xerox’s global markets. Projects under this theme include on-line market places for services, mobile workflows and applications for enterprises, social network modeling for targeted information and cloud-based document solutions.
The India Innovation Hub is located at the Olympia Technology Park in Chennai, India.
