Artificial Intelligence Group

Welcome to the Artificial Intelligence Group

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Group at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science conducts research in many areas of artificial intelligence. Faculty members of the group have active interests in: models of intelligent interaction, multi-agent systems, natural language understanding, constraint programming, computational vision, robotics, machine learning, and reasoning under uncertainty.

The AI Group also has a particular investment in Societal AI.

    People suffering from the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease often have difficulty remembering things that recently happened to them. As the disease takes root, a person’s reasoning and behaviour can change. Day-to-day routines — like handwashing — may become challenging for them and they begin to need more assistance from caregivers for simple tasks.

    But now there is technology that can help.
