UCL Centre for Artificial Intelligence


UCL Centre for Artificial Intelligence

The AI Centre carries out foundational research in AI

As we transition to a more automated society, the core aim of the Centre is to create new AI technologies and advise on the use of AI in science, industry and society. The Centre brings together researchers with a shared interest in fundamental challenges in Machine Vision, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Machine Action, Interpretation and Knowledge Representation.

The Centre takes inspiration from the vast array of applications across UCL and acts as the engine of methodological progress. The AI Centre has close research and training links to other local AI communities, including the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit and the Alan Turing Institute. The AI Centre is part of UCL's wider AI Strategy and serves as the engine of methodological development across UCL.
