Artificial Intelligence

At CWI, AI research is firmly embedded, as the institute has been involved in AI research from the early beginnings. A number of research groups are advancing AI and its applications, working both from a computer science and a mathematical perspective.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world, increasingly showcasing impressive results in many fields of science and society. To a large extent, this is due to fundamental progress, such as theoretical and methodological advances. CWI has longstanding fundamental research lines on various topics that are commonly considered to be cornerstones of AI. Key topics include:

  • Machine learning theory
  • Neural networks
  • Multi-agent systems
  • Evolutionary algorithms
  • Human-computer interaction

In accordance with CWI's mission to benefit society, CWI also actively works on AI applications. Often, this is done in a multi-disciplinary, multi-party, collaborative setting. This ensures that key demands of end-users are met, thereby maximizing utilization and valorization potential. Key application areas include:

  • Energy and smart infrastructures
  • Health and medicine
  • Humanities
  • Human augmentation and remote communication
