Artificial Intelligence at WSU

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming every aspect of our lives. Academia, industry and government are more than ever before putting their efforts together to advance AI technology and innovation while ensuring its ethical application. WSU is a dedicated contributor to this endeavor, and is playing an active role in AI research, both in terms of applications of AI and fundamentals of AI, including machine learning and data science. WSU researchers are leading major efforts applying AI to a variety of domains, including healthcare, agriculture, cybersecurity, engineering, and the sciences.

The AI research enterprise at WSU is expanding every day. Visit the Office of Research’s Artificial Intelligence @ WSU page dedicated to this effort for resources related to AI policy and funding opportunities, core AI projects and labs at WSU, and a growing list of WSU faculty working on questions related to artificial intelligence and machine learning.
