AI and data science are transforming our world. Both fields are at the forefront of innovation in robotics, health care, materials science, autonomous vehicles, and countless other areas that are key to the United States’ future economy and security. They offer hope for solving complex problems like detecting fraud buried deep in financial systems, reducing human bias in the judicial system, and efficiently finding the right compound for the safest and most effective medicine.
The Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (IAD) brings together researchers, labs, institutes, and centers of excellence at the University at Buffalo that are focused on advancements in AI, data science, and related areas of research to tackle these complex problems.
The new institute combines two UB research organizations – the Artificial Intelligence Institute and the Institute for Computational and Data Science - and is led by David Doermann, a SUNY Empire Innovation Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
The Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science will tackle some of the world’s biggest problems through groundbreaking research in the following areas:
In addition to pursuing cutting-edge research aimed at solving globally-relevant problems, the Institute prepares students interested in artificial intelligence and data science through its education programs and curriculum development.
Students who graduate from these programs are equipped with the skills to succeed in the rapidly evolving fields of information technology, data science, and artificial intelligence. Current degree programs include:
