AI Partners


The University of Michigan Artificial Intelligence (AI) Partners Program provides a formal venue for a community of AI leaders to convene and collaborate.

The AI Partners Program, structured around the themes of “Insight” and “Interaction”, will provide access to cutting-edge research in the field of AI, as well as close interactions with renowned experts in core AI topics including machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, robotics, precision health, human-computer interaction, data mining, intelligent agents, and reasoning.

Built around four technological neighborhoods — data mining, precision health, conversational systems and robotics — the Michigan AI Partners will focus its efforts on defining new thinking and applications for AI.
