Synerise S.A. is an official partner of Microsoft, and is a global pioneer in the field of using AI to provide modern Customer Services Management and Revenue Management Software services to clients throughout various sectors, across the globe.
The company, which utilizes experts in the fields of data sciences and machine learning, has long-standing experience in the field of AI and is now seeking to enter into partnerships with Indian governmental and non-governmental agencies, as well as private sector enterprises, to enhance the quality and efficiency of education offered to students in India.
Synerise S.A. is already actively involved in adapting AI solutions to academic institutions in Europe. The company recently launched AI Schools & Academy, an innovative educational programme which employs AI, cloud computing and online educational courses and databases, with the aim of fostering organic learning to students, thereby allowing them to develop and explore their own capabilities.
Synerise S.A. has partnered with Microsoft, Ernst & Young, thePolish state insurance giant PZU and the private retail chain outlet Zabka in rolling out this programme.
In an age of groundbreaking technological developments which are constantly changing the world in which we live, the need for these to be taught in schools and high learning institutions is increasingly being felt.
An active engagement of these new technologies can serve as a springboard for India’s youth to establish and create new and far-reaching solutions to global challenges, thereby increasing India’s competitiveness in developing modern technological solutions.
Artificial Intelligence is also increasingly being used to develop one-on-one student learning and to prevent school dropouts. For instance, the Azure machine learning and cloud technology system developed by Microsoft, allows educators to access time-stamped metrics, from student enrollment and performance, to gender and socio-economic indicators, thereby alerting facilitators to evaluate risks of individual student dropouts.
According to a research paper recently released by NITI Aayog titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence #AIforAll’, Artificial Intelligence has a huge potential to accelerate India’s economic growth, and by some estimates can add USD 1 trillion to India’s economy by 2035.
The paper has highlighted two key recommendations: the establishment of academic research hubs under the ‘Centres for Research Excellence in AI’ and the development of industry-led ‘International Centres for Transformational Artificial Intelligence’.
The use of Artificial Intelligence in areas such as healthcare, urban infrastructure, retail and mobility has the potential to revolutionize these segments over the course of the coming years.
In 2018, Ernst & Young selected Synerise S.A. as one of the 30 most exciting global technology-focused high-growth start-ups in its annual EY Accelerating Entrepreneurs Programme. In the same year, the company won the ‘2018 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award’.
Poland is home to one of the most dynamic IT sectors in the Central & Eastern European Region (CEE) and the wider European Union. The country already serves as the regional hub of major international IT companies, such as IBM, Microsoft, HP and Google.
Several major Indian IT enterprises, such as Infosys, HCL, Wipro, TCS already use their Polish headquarters to serve their clients across the European Union.
The strength of the Polish IT sector is principally attributed to the strong economic growth of the Polish economy, access to a highly-skilled and motivated workforce, the presence of innovative academic and research establishments, high employee compensation and governmental incentives provided to this sector.
