AI Research Initiative

The Artificial Intelligence Research (AIR) initiative at BU is a cross-disciplinary research initiative focused on machine learning of intelligence. It brings together researchers whose work aims to create intelligent systems that learn to 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 those of biological intelligence (human or animal). 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.
