The Group's Data Science and Cyber Security Centre of Excellence will be set up soon in the Electronics City on the southern outskirts of this tech hub.

The agreement envisages solving sector specific big data problems, developing knowledge and practices in complex problems and bringing methodological consistency relevant to the Indian context.

"The centre will work with solutions of the pattern recognition and data analytics centre at Deakin to solve analytics challenges faced in healthcare, IT and banking financial services and insurance (BFSI) sectors," said Ramabhadran in a statement.

The centre will also investigate and address problems in key technology areas in the Indian ecosystem spanning health, insurance, banking, security and education.

"The courses are designed to get hands-on experience in sectors like BFSI, IT and manufacturing which are prone to threats," added Hollander.
