In opening its new Living Lab in Melbourne, Infosys is taking its exploration of digital technologies and human experience to a new level. The lab uniquely features a stadium-style collaboration space alongside a graffiti wall featuring Melbourne icons such as Luna Park and Brighton’s bathing boxes. The space will be used to accelerate innovative tech solutions and digital experiences, enabling users of the space to ideate, prototype and test new products for market.

The Melbourne Living Lab is housed in Infosys’ new state-of-the-art office building, spanning five floors and over 9200 sqm at Two Melbourne Quarter in Docklands.

Infosys is a partner of the Victorian Government’s Digital Jobs program, enabling career pathways for experienced professionals from a variety of backgrounds to forge new careers in the digital sector.

Melbourne’s world-leading educational universities and institutions enjoy a reputation for producing globally recognised graduates in digital engineering and tech, and this skill base has continued to benefit the company’s innovations. To tap into the state’s talent pipeline Infosys’ graduate program, InStep, collaborates closely with Victorian universities including the University of Melbourne, Deakin University, Monash University and RMIT.

The company’s continuing relationship with Melbourne is further cemented by the company’s digital innovation partnership with the Australian Open (AO), now in its fourth year. The company utilises big data and analytics, cloud with virtual and augmented reality to optimise the AO experience for fans, tournament players and stakeholders.

Infosys emphasises the human perspective to explore advancing technology of cutting-edge global solutions including IoT, AI, AR, VR, 3D, machine learning, robotics, wearable tech, gestural interfaces and more. Their new Living Lab in Melbourne provides a playground of experimentation and collaboration to prepare these innovations for market, both in Australia and globally
