TU/e AI Scientific Roadmap

In support of the EAISI mission and building on the strengths of TU/e and its Brainport ecosystem, the EAISI Scientific Board has defined the AI Scientific Roadmap consisting of the following research program lines:

  • Certifiable, Robust, and Explainable AI
  • Trustworthy Data Integration
  • Merging Models and Data in AI
  • Computational AI Hardware and Software
  • Decision-making for Engineering Systems
  • AI Systems Engineering
  • Augmenting Intelligence
  • Democratizing AI

These research program lines are described below in detail.


EAISI aims to set up research projects, preferably in cooperation with industrial partners and with (inter)national funding. Our program managers set up contacts with industry, apply for research funding and keep in contact with our alliances and partnerships in order to obtain funding for AI research at TU/e.
