Nokia and MIT Collaborate on New Research Centre


It’s seems like collaboration is the name of the game in the mobile device business these days. Nokia is joining the rush as they have announced that they have combined with MIT to create a new research centre on the university’s Cambridge, Mass. campus. The new centre will be called the Nokia Research Centre Cambridge and will be part of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

Under the assumption that we will keep using mobile devices more and more, the research will work on finding ways to integrate them even further into our lives, or our bodies. They will look at user interfaces, especially ones using speech, low power hardware and new technologies and architecture.

Twenty scientists from Nokia will be joining 20 colleagues from MIT at the facility. Along with their other goals, they will be working on making devices that are much more intuitive.
