DENSO has become an industry member of the Montréal-based Institute for Data Valorization (IVADO). The Institute fosters collaboration between private and academic researchers to cultivate and expand the expertise of its members in cutting-edge fields like data science, operational research and artificial intelligence (AI).
As the automotive industry continues to shift toward emerging areas, such as automated driving, cloud computing and AI, DENSO will leverage IVADO’s research talent and capabilities to enhance its push into deep learning, data mining, cybersecurity, and more.
The announcement supports DENSO’s long-term plan, which is in part focused on expediting company innovation by broadening its research and development (R&D) capabilities outside of Japan. It also comes after DENSO and officials from Québec, Montréal and the Government of Canada announced in January the opening of the company’s Montréal Innovation Lab, its first site in the city. Much like DENSO’s work with IVADO, the lab will concentrate on accelerating innovations in advanced technology like AI for mobility.
Additionally, the partnership offers DENSO access to innovative professional trainings, strategic research partnerships with major networks and consortiums, and increased interaction with Montréal’s massive data-valorization community.
