What we do?
- We help people act with insight.
- We help companies grow from the inside.
- We help employees turn into thinkers.
We ignite thought
If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.

Dr. Rajendra K Bera
Dr. Rajendra Bera is currently the Chief Mentor at Acadinnet (http://www.acadinnet.com/). He has acquired a wide multi-disciplinary background that includes aerospace engineering, molecular biology, quantum computing, non-linear dynamical systems, intellectual property rights, science & technology policy. His professional career experiences too are wide and span academia, research, & industry.
In academia he served as a visiting assistant professor of aerospace, mechanical and nuclear engineering at the University of Oklahoma, USA (1979-1980); a visiting faculty of aerospace engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India (1979-1980) where he taught fighter aircraft design; an honorary professor at the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, India where he taught quantum computing and intellectual property rights, and a visiting professor at Jain University, department of aerospace engineering where he taught fighter aircraft design and intellectual property rights.
In research, he was a research scientist (1971-1995) at the National Aerospace Laboratories, Bangalore, India where he worked mainly in aerodynamics, flight dynamics, theory of elasticity, neural networks, science and technology policy, and technology transfer to industry. At IBM Software Labs, Bangalore, India (1995-2005) he built an R&D group focused on developing patentable technologies and mentored young researchers and inventors. He retired as the head of R&D; chair of Invention Development Team of IBM Global Services, India; and mentor of inventors at IBM India. He is the sole inventor on 28 US patents, all assigned to IBM. His patenting areas include compiler optimization, resource allocation, pattern recognition, and static analysis of computer codes.
Dr. Bera received his BTech, MTech, and PhD degrees in aeronautical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. He was a member of the New York Academy of Sciences; and is a Fellow of The Institution of Engineers (India). He is listed in several Marquis Who's Who.
He is the sole author of over 45 (out of 50+) research publications in refereed journals and of several articles in the media. He is also the sole inventor on twenty-eight (28) US patents. His current research interests include pattern recognition in molecular biology, quantum computing, intellectual property rights, and non-linear dynamical systems.
Many years ago, he was an amateur pilot. In his last four years at IBM, Dr. Bera extensively lectured in the IBM Software Labs in a unique program to create a research culture among his colleagues. The topics covered were molecular biology, quantum computing, formal systems in mathematics, chaos and fractals, information theory, and computer science. He is a member of the Infosys Prize Nomination Council (since 2012); and serves as a member of Peer Teams for assessment and accreditation of universities by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, India since 2011.
His scientific output and contributions in various forms is listed in subsections.
