IBM, the University of South Carolina and engineering construction company Fluor have formed a Center for Applied Innovation. The center will provide application services to both public and private sector organizations across North America, with specialties in the areas of analytics and higher education industry solutions, says IBM. As part of the initiative, the organizations will collaborate on tailored IT curricula and advanced analytic techniques for personalized learning as well. The Center for Applied Innovation will initially be located in existing facilities on USC’s campus and is expected to move to a new office building in the Innovista Research District anticipated to open in 2016.
