Ashoka Mphasis Lab
The Ashoka Mphasis Lab is a distinguished collaboration between Ashoka University and Mphasis, exemplifying the synergy of industry and academia. Initiated in 2020, this collaboration has flourished, with the renewal of funding in 2023 underscoring the significance and continued commitment of both institutions to this partnership. The lab prides itself on its interdisciplinary approach, bridging various academic realms to offer a holistic perspective on computational challenges. With students and researchers hailing from diverse disciplines, the lab ensures computational learning remains accessible and impactful. This inclusive approach not only promotes diversity of thought but also encourages students and researchers to fuse their expertise, leading to groundbreaking solutions.
Our research form the backbone of the lab’s endeavors. With a keen emphasis on domains such as Artificial Intelligence, Health Analytics, and Dissemination, the lab is at the forefront of addressing contemporary challenges. BharatSim stands out as a trailblazer, offering large-scale simulations that could be transformative for government and healthcare sectors. Meanwhile, the Ashoka Centre for Health Analytics, Research & Trends (CHART) seeks to fill the data void in India’s healthcare, aiming to enhance Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by presenting actionable insights, ultimately refining policy-making. The AI@Ashoka initiative is our commitment to pushing the frontiers of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. With this initiative, we’re not just exploring technological advancements but also addressing the ethical implications that come with it.
Complementing these projects, the Ashoka Mphasis Lab features the Digital Makerspace. This space is dedicated to fostering engagement and hands-on experiential learning. It’s designed to be a hub for creativity, where students and researchers can ideate, design, and implement tech-enabled solutions. From high-tech instruments to basic tools, the Makerspace encapsulates the entire spectrum, providing resources for a holistic learning experience.
In essence, the Ashoka Mphasis Lab epitomizes Ashoka University’s vision for an immersive and comprehensive educational experience, preparing students for future challenges in the tech world.
