What Is CMU AI?

Artificial intelligence means many things to many people. But at Carnegie Mellon — the place where AI was invented more than half a century ago — we understand that we have an obligation to study and create new frontiers in AI. We don't take that obligation lightly.

CMU AI unites our interdisciplinary artificial intelligence research and education efforts to create an AI strategy for the planet. To pioneer ways to make AI safe. To create the human-centered operating system of autonomy. It establishes the critical mass of brilliant human minds, state-of-the-art research facilities and financial resources necessary to create technologies that will change the world for the better.

To learn more about our efforts, watch the video from our first all-hands CMU AI meeting in November.
