Indiana University will be a principal organization in two of the U.S. National Science Foundation's 11 new NSF National Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes, helping advance artificial intelligence to improve people's lives, on of which the Center of Excellence for Women & Technology is collaborating with the IU Luddy School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering.
Overall, the 11 institutes are focused on AI-based technologies that will result in advances such as helping older adults lead more independent lives, creating solutions to improve agriculture and food supply chains, and transforming AI into accessible "plug-and-play" technology, the NSF said in an announcement on July 29.
IU will be a principal organization in two of the AI research institutes, and Luddy and will collaborate with NSF AI Institute for Intelligent Cyberinfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment, led by Ohio State University and supported by a $20 million, five-year grant from the NSF.
The project, ICICLE: Intelligent CyberInfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment, is focused on applying AI to improve the underlying national cyberinfrastructure (software, data, edge, cloud, HPC) (AI for CI), and innovations in cyberinfrastructure for novel AI applications (CI for AI).
