Hewlett-Packard's (HP's) Indian research lab is building applications designed to simplify human-computer interaction for enterprises in sectors such as health care and financial services. HP Labs India views enterprise business as a significant opportunity, but also believes the apps will help drive IT penetration in the country.

"We are developing some applications for the Indian market that will be controlled using natural interfaces," says HP Labs India director Sudhir Dixit. "We have combined all these things into a solution that we are building where there is a mobile, a TV, and there's paper."

HP Labs India wants to integrate technology that is available off-the-shelf to allow for tasks such as digitizing a paper document using a mobile phone or synchronizing entertainment between a phone and TV. The lab also is developing a prototype of a hardware ecosystem.

The lab recently released a beta version of its Personalized Video app, a tool for creating channels on a topic of interest based on videos pulled from YouTube. Another app links online text-based educational content with videos.
