Future Group has announced the launch of Future C&D Lab in Bangalore that focuses on the consumer and digital space to bring in next generation innovations using Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Blockchains, Robotics and allied technologies. It brings together multiple companies working on these areas in a collaborative space.

The teams and companies have a ready access to test, experiment and prototype their technologies across Future Group's brand and retail platforms that serve over a million customers everyday. The research and development activities will be supported through a Rs 100 crore Accelerator Fund that will be set up to fund the operations, technology development and IPR creation by the teams working at the lab.

"The Future C&D Lab is aimed at co-creating the next generation technologies for the consumer space in India. We are creating an open environment of collaboration and co-creation with some of the best young Indian minds who are working with new technologies to create solutions that can impact the retail and consumer space over the next couple of years," said Kishore Biyani, Future Group's founder and Group CEO.

The lab is pursuing technology developments that will influence consumer experiences in areas such as payments, unique consumer identification and development of one-on-one consumer conversations, analytics and predictive modelling as well as in backend functions such as supplier engagements, supply chain automation and infrastructure deployment.

The new lab features a multidisciplinary team composed of technologists, engineers, data scientists, designers and consumer specialists and will also be running hackathons, secondments and open workshops that allow continuous learning, collaboration and exchange of skills. (KD)
