Nokia Announces Partnership With Stanford

By Bryan Gardiner

On Thursday, at its newly established research facility in Palo Alto, Nokia announced it will be entering into a three-year collaborative effort with nearby Stanford University.

As part of the agreement, Stanford will be helping in four distinct research areas: context-aware content and communities, wireless grids, advanced user interfaces and visual media and innovation radio and sensor networks.

The latter focus, which includes things like developing applications for emerging short-range radio technology, as well as other potential services for mobile devices, will be undertaken both at the facility and Stanford's campus.

Similarly, the Palo Alto Research Center will also be focusing on technologies such as mobile augmented reality, or trying to use mobile phones as a platform for fusing the physical and digital worlds. This will be done by using an integrated Bluetooth sensor unit, a compass, and a GPS receiver that can highlight a friend's location onscreen, provide links to other profiles and, in general, help people find their way around a given city or town.

Although still in the developmental phase, many of these technologies were previewed at the Palo Alto facility on Thursday.

"The nature of the industry has changed, so our research has also had to change," said Tero Ojaperä, vice president and chief technology officer at Nokia.

"Ultimately, Nokia is in a unique position. We can take ideas and bring them to the mass market fairly quickly. However, we can't meet all the market's technology demands on our own. That's why we're reaching out."

I usually reflexively delete comment spam but this is actually relatively on topic...
