The facility will provide space for Infosys and its clients to ideate, collaborate and innovate together by combining design and the latest technology offerings, including artificial intelligence, augmented reality/virtual reality, Internet of Things and 5G, Infosys said in a statement.

The studio is designed to enable co-creation and co-innovation between Infosys and its clients at both speed and scale, it added. "The studio will hire and scale talent with capabilities in experience design, innovation strategy and customer-centric technologies, and will focus on the development of emerging technologies for use in a wide range of UK businesses, including those in financial services, manufacturing, retail and telecom," it said.

The studio, covering 20,000 ft with capacity for 250 employees, has a wellness zone, a usability lab and a range of creative spaces. It will also provide local start-ups with the opportunity to showcase their products to clients.
