PLDT Enterprise, through Innovation Laboratory (Innolab), is partnering with Swedish ICT leader Ericsson to create AI-powered solutions for various industries including the public sector.
The partnership will make use of Ericsson’s AI Exchange Platform for exploring innovative solutions for different industries.
The Ericsson AI Exchange is an enterprise-grade solution that leverages on an ecosystem of developers and partners. It is a full technology stack based on a distributed architecture deployed in a hybrid-cloud.
PLDT Innolab was designed to provide local industries and start-ups with world-class facilities that focus on research and co-development of new generation products and innovations.
“PLDT Enterprise is always on the lookout for innovative solutions that drive the digital transformation of our customers. We are fully committed to supporting local startups and other industries through the provision of cutting-edge solutions developed by our innovation units,” said Niko Peralta, PLDT Enterprise Head of Business and Innovations Strategy and Special Projects.
“We are certain that the Innolab and Ericsson collaboration will deliver digital solutions, including improved machine vision, that will benefit different industries,” he added.
Ericsson’s AI Exchange has also been used for a joint Ericsson-Smart sustainability project in Sasmuan, Pampanga, which involves the protection of mangrove forests and the detection and species classification of birds.
