IIIT Hyderabad is focused on making its research relevant to the industry and society. Through a dialogue between IIIT Hyderabad faculty and industry leaders, we hope to identify a few significant Industry, level problems that need attention from academic research. Here, we are making an attempt to understand the right problems and their complexities before we start working on the solutions. It is very important to listen to the problems on the field before investing a lot of valuable research time.
