Software, models and algorithms offer opportunities to create a smarter society based on our needs and challenges.

Research includes autonomous and interactive vehicles, robots and complex software-intensive systems with the intelligence to achieve autonomy in interaction with humans.

Launch of Chalmers AI research centre

Artificial intelligence

Rapid developments in computing resources and networks and huge data volumes have the potential to change how our society works.

Our research includes fundamental understanding of the technology, as well as applications in research, society and industry. We develop methods based on advanced algorithms and computational challenges that arise from collecting, storing and visualising large volumes of data.
