Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) research explores the nature of intelligence and the ways in which computation can be used to explain and engineer it. Work in AI combines the scale afforded by machine learning with the expressive and organizational power of semantic information-processing and knowledge-based reasoning. Our faculty research programs include work in machine learning, cognitive modeling, language understanding and generation, planning and reasoning, robotics and human-robot interaction, computational journalism, social media analysis, computer audition, computers and education, computational creativity, and legal reasoning.
