Nokia, MIT to research on mobile tech

Oct 27, 2005

Nokia said Thursday it will work with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to research on mobile computing and communications technologies.

MIT's computer science and artificial-intelligence laboratory and Nokia Research Center will establish a lab near the MIT campus to "work closely together on a new vision for mobile computing," the Finnish mobile-phone giant said in a news release.

"Information and communication technologies are becoming ever more critical in all aspects of our personal and professional lives," stated MIT President Susan Hockfield. "By carrying out long-term research in these fields, including novel uses of hand-held devices, MIT and Nokia will make new communication opportunities and services available for people around the globe."

"For Nokia, this is a fresh approach to our research collaboration with universities," said Dr. Bob Iannucci, head of Nokia Research Center. "Bringing together the collective expertise of MIT and Nokia in mobile computing and communications provides a vehicle for rapidly generating new concepts and bringing innovations to the marketplace on a large scale."
