The International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Hyderabad, has established the Raj Reddy Center for Technology and Society (RCTS) to celebrate and amplify the passion of Prof. Raj Reddy in education and research for the bottom of the pyramid. The Center aims for strong national and global impacts to society through technology-based solutions. It aspires to be a global hub to bring the latest research to solve societal problems. Sustainability and Scalability are the key concerns in all engagements at the Center.
What we do?
The Raj Reddy Center will take a bottom-up, problem-centred approach to leverage research and technologies in solving societal problems. It will identify a few socially relevant themes and take up projects in them to create a sequentially linked amplification of impact. It will take a wholesome view of the problem addressing all aspects, technology and otherwise, through to realising value on ground.
