HP Labs India
HP Labs India, Bangalore, resides in an epicenter of global high-tech companies. The unprecedented growth and optimism in information and communication technology have created huge growth opportunities for HP. These opportunities serve as our inspiration and drive our research agenda. We believe that India now has the critical mass of customer demand, a large pool of talent, an environment for world-class innovation, and a heightened awareness for value-for-money, such that new technology and service trends will likely first develop here and then go global. After successfully targeting the main impediments to adaptation of IT by the masses, such as complexity of interaction, lack of clear value proposition, affordability, and unique language, cultural and usage requirements, for the past several years, we are now focusing on developing solutions and services for the consumers and the enterprises where we embed the technologies to overcome the barriers from ground up..
Within HP, HP Labs is the "advance scout" for the company - looking out for opportunities beyond the current generation of products, and creating technologies that position our businesses to lead in these opportunities. Being an interconnected laboratory of the global network of HP laboratories we work closely with our colleagues in Palo Alto, Bristol, Haifa, St. Petersburg, Beijing and Singapore. We measure our success by innovating cutting-edge technologies and solutions that provide strategic business advantage and impact for our customers and the company. We are singularly focused on identifying and tapping these opportunities through world-class competences of our researchers and open innovation with external organizations.
Since our establishment in year 2002, HP Labs India has established itself as a pioneer and leader in ICT research on topics inspired by the needs of the emerging markets. In the past, our team has demonstrated how to simplify Web and IT experiences by developing technologies such as using pen based input for Indian scripts, an intelligent hub of the home product to bring computing onto the TV and the mobile devices, voice based IT access in local languages, use of broadcast networks for mass communications, intuitive multimodal and gestural interaction, simplified web access using Tasklets and secured print flows. The lab has won numerous national and international awards for its innovative work.
As many challenges associated with access to infrastructure and devices get addressed, we are poised to see unprecedented deployment of web technologies in every sphere of economic, social and personal endeavor. As this transformation occurs, we are presented with an exciting array or research and innovation opportunities not only in technology but also in how to make them commercially viable.
Our current areas of research include, but not limited to, are: Content Creation, Augmentation and Sensemaking, Human Augmented Computing, Smart Mobile Services, and Interaction Technologies for the users at the BoP. More details on our research activities can be found on our web pages.
We are always interested in talking to and inviting top-notch researchers who have the vision and passion to solve real problems of the billions of people barely touched by the ICT revolution. I look forward to any questions, comments, or feedback that you may have, or simply write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
