We explore the intersection of computing and other rapidly advancing disciplines to enable a new generation of smart products and services.
Top areas of focus
Our focus is on combining computing with other rapidly advancing disciplines – including material science, neuroscience, and molecular biology.
Materials that sense and react to stimuli in a controlled way, forming the basis of unobtrusive interfaces and of smart products and environments.
We explore how a new generation of brain-inspired computing hardware, offering low power, low latency, and local learning can enable AI at the edge.

Pushing technology-driven innovation beyond IT
As the physical and digital worlds become increasingly interconnected, the most dramatic tech-driven innovation will increasingly involve combining computation with advances in other areas of physical and biological science.
Our interdisciplinary work involves identifying scientific disciplines that are making rapid progress toward applications and that – generally in combination with information technology - can enable innovative products and services. Because our work stretches Accenture Labs’ traditional boundaries, we place a heavy emphasis on collaborating with external researchers in both industry and academia.
Driving AI at the edge with neuromorphic computing
Neuromorphic architectures are radically different from those used in traditional processors because they emulate neural systems. With emerging neuromorphic hardware and maturing platforms, it’s time to start experimenting.
