IRIIC stands for Institute of Research, Innovation, Incubation & Commercialization. AIMS Lab, Brain Computer Interface Research Lab, University Innovation Hub, Center for Digital Health Innovation & Policy Research and Industry & Academia Collaboration Center for Fourth Industrial Revolution, all are under one institute. IRIIC will conduct research, innovation, incubation and commercialization culture utilizing 4IR technologies in Bangladesh.
The objective of IRIIC is to minimize the gap between academia, industry and government and work collaboratively to craft social and industrial problems into innovative solutions and build a skilled workforce to lead the 4th Industrial Revolution era. IRIIC will play a pivotal role in creating excellence in research, industry & academia collaboration, promoting startup ecosystem and innovative nation towards building smart Bangladesh.
The journey began in December 2014, department of Computer Science and Engineering of United International University started a research laboratory named Advanced Intelligent Multidisciplinary Systems Lab (AIMS Lab) to foster computer science research and development in Bangladesh as well as to utilize the benefits of information technology for the society. The research lab focuses on theoretical aspects and applications of the areas of machine learning and data mining, natural language processing, intelligent systems, computational intelligence, biomedical engineering, bioinformatics and embedded systems. This lab is driven by a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified researchers in their respective fields and aiming to maximizing possibilities for computer science research and applications in Bangladesh.
In 2021, with the support from the Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority, ICT Division we launched Bangladesh’s first Brain Computer Interface Research Lab at UIU. In this lab we are conducting research on Brain, neuroscience, neural and rehabilitations engineering and its applications in Bangladesh.
