Human-centered AI

An approach to designing and developing AI systems that prioritize the needs, capabilities and perspectives of human users.

Generative AI

A large language model developed by OpenAI that is designed to generate human-like responses to text-based prompts.

Digital Twins

Virtual replicas of physical objects, processes or systems that are used to simulate and analyze their behavior in a digital environment.


Web 3


A hypothetical future iteration of the internet that is a fully-immersive and interactive virtual world. The digital avatars can interact with each other and their surroundings in real-time.

Smart Contracts

Self-executing contracts that automatically execute the terms of an agreement when certain conditions are met.

Decentralized Apps

Applications that run on decentralized networks, such as blockchain, rather than on centralized servers.



Quantum Computing

Principles of computer science, physics and mathematics that uses quantum mechanics to solve complex problems faster than on classical computers. 

Quantum Communications

A method of transmitting information securely using quantum mechanics. Quantum communication uses the properties of individual particles such as photons, to transmit information.

Quantum Sensing

An advanced sensor technology that vastly improves the accuracy of how we measure, navigate, study, explore, see and interact with the world around us by sensing changes in motion and electric and magnetic fields. 



Edge Computer Vision

The use of computer vision algorithms and techniques on edge devices that are capable of processing data locally without relying on a centralized server or cloud computing infrastructure.

Edge Analytics

It involves analyzing data in real-time on local devices or edge servers. This can help to identify patterns and insights more quickly, enabling faster decision-making.

Edge IoT

IoT devices that process data at the edge of the network, rather than sending all data to the cloud. Devices include sensors, gateways and edge servers that perform analytics and decision-making functions.
