Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to apparently intelligent behavior by machines, distinct from human and animal intelligence. AI represents the general concept of intelligence, resting on technical pillars.

Leveraging the development of Artificial intelligence through an interdepartmental approach

AI research is defined as the study of intelligent agents: devices that perceive their environments and take actions that maximize their chance of succeeding at a goal. This goal could be reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, natural language processing, perception or moving and manipulating objects. AI has always been ‘specialized’, focusing on arriving at the best decisions and strategies in different application contexts, with little real-world perception and understanding. The advent of Deep Learning (DL, deep neural networks) has boosted Machine Learning (ML) which is successfully employed in detection, classification and recognition and the engine of many advanced AI demonstrations in games and robotics. DL has become a dominant supporting technology and today, AI, ML and DL are seen as something of a unified field.

Data Science Center Eindhoven

Many research groups at different TU/e departments are active either in advancing AI or in the application of AI techniques in their specific domains. The AI research group will closely collaborate with those groups and researchers. Recently the Data Science Center Eindhoven (DSCE) started with community building around this important topic. For more information, please visit the page of the DSCE.
