$23M Investment to Fuel AI Research and Teaching

A new UBC Science interdisciplinary cluster will help fuel artificial intelligence innovation and research excellence over the next two years. The Artificial Intelligence Methods for Scientific Impact (AIM-SI) cluster will hire five new assistant professors across the Departments of Computer Science (two faculty members), Statistics (two faculty members), and Mathematics (one faculty member). The $23M investment will be funded by the President’s Academic Excellence Initiative (PAEI).

AIM-SI will be organized as a cluster of Science faculty within the ICICS research cluster Centre for Artificial Intelligence Decision-making and Action (CAIDA). Read the original full story on the UBC Computer Science website.
