Labs looking forward: Richer, bolder, further
By: Marc Carrel-Billiard

At Labs, our research groups live at the cutting edge of innovation for Accenture and our clients. But living at the cutting edge means we’re always looking for ways to push even further!

For FY19, we’re building richer experiences, growing our main Labs locations around the world, and expanding our powerful Nano Labs program to bring Labs research to life in locations around the globe.


We don’t just invent the future. We build it. #AccentureLabs

 
 

We’re going bolder, pushing our cross-group initiatives forward to make the most of our expertise across R&D groups, as well as partnering with other groups within Accenture to drive innovation for our clients. Our efforts in Industry X.0, Enterprise Artificial General Intelligence, and Tech4Good look to combine the power of our global expertise.

We’re looking further, adding two new exploration areas: smart materials and synthetic biology and computing. Smart textiles have broad implications across industries from healthcare to entertainment, while biocomputation will expand existing computing paradigms and unlock new possibilities in artificial intelligence. These areas will complement our existing R&D groups in artificial intelligence, digital experiences, application engineering, systems and platforms, and cyber security, powering innovative research that pushes further ahead than ever.

We don’t just invent the future. We build it.

As FY19 gets underway, our Labbers are pushing further ahead than ever before. Watch this space for the latest “updates from the future” – we can’t wait to show you what we’re building.
