U-LINK Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the science and engineering of building computer systems to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. It covers other sub-fields such as Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, and Computer Vision. AI can enhance human capabilities, with myriad opportunities to leverage new technology to tackle complex problems, from automating time-consuming tasks to augmenting decision-making. However, implementing AI solutions is challenging, not least because of the rapidly evolving field. This call supports interdisciplinary projects leveraging AI and machine learning in an effort to tackle, transform, and positively impact societal problems and fundamental research.
