FAPESP and IBM announce the result of the first call for proposals under the cooperation agreement between the institutions.

Eight research projects will be funded. The projects will be conducted by researchers in the State of São Paulo with the goal to generate knowledge about cognitive computing.

The emphasis of the call is on computer systems that are able to process and integrate different kinds of data, learn at scale, reason with purpose, and interact with humans naturally.

Project duration must be up to 2 years.
