AI Research Initiative

AIR students and faculty standing on Cummington Mall

The Artificial Intelligence Research (AIR) initiative at BU is a cross-disciplinary research initiative focused on machine intelligence. It brings together researchers whose work aims to create intelligent systems that reliably make decisions, reason about data, and communicate with humans. The primary research focus is on new computational models aimed at general artificial intelligence, i.e. agents that exhibit the skills and learning capacity close to human ability. The initiative crosses the boundaries of computer vision, natural language processing, machine learning, robotics, and human-computer interaction research and promotes AI education at Boston University.
AIR meetings occur weekly at the Hariri Institute for Computing. Research talks include Ph.D. student presentations on ongoing or published work, local guests from the greater Boston area, and distinguished speakers from other universities and industry partners. Please refer to the AIR calendar for upcoming dates and talk information.
