Artificial Intelligence

At the forefront of AI research

At IU, what sets artificial intelligence research apart is collaboration – both interdisciplinary work among AI faculty experts and work with government and industry partners – and access to IU’s world-leading university IT infrastructure.
IU is leading the way in building new pathways for educating the next generation of AI experts and our researchers are navigating complex issues such as built-in bias in algorithms, whether robots have rights, the spread of misinformation and more.
