Artificial intelligence means many things to many people. But at Carnegie Mellon — the place where AI was invented more than half a century ago — we understand that we have an obligation to study and create new frontiers in AI. We don’t take that obligation lightly.
CMU AI unites our interdisciplinary artificial intelligence research and education efforts to create an AI strategy for the planet. To pioneer ways to make AI safe. To create the operating system of autonomy. It establishes the critical mass of brilliant human minds, state-of-the-art research facilities and financial resources necessary to create technologies that will change the world for the better.

MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab @MIT_CSAIL •
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) conducts research in all areas of computer science and AI, such as robotics, systems, theory, biology, machine learning, speech recognition, vision and graphics.  Here you’ll find videos showcasing the exciting research being done at CSAIL.

SAIL – Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL) has been a centre of excellence for Artificial Intelligence research, teaching, theory, and practice since its founding in 1962.
