They will investigate new techniques for knowledge representation across documents, graphs, charts, and other forms of multi-media content, it said, adding the research will help the financial services, retail and healthcare sectors.

As part of the collaboration, the two partners will also work on training and building domain-specific AI agents (chatbots), which will aid humans in complex decision making such as making trading and investment choices in financial services, it said.

Domain-neutral training approaches which could enable faster, more efficient training of AI systems will also be explored, it said.

Meanwhile, IBM also said that it has signed a 10-year contract with Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail, under which it will help the diversified conglomerate’s arm reduce costs, improve productivity enhancements and drive business growth as it expands the store network.
