Welcome to the Bio-Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience (BRAIN) Lab website

Our research aims to better understand brain function by developing and testing computer models of neural systems. We use robots to allow these models to interact with the physical world.

A new institute at the University of Waterloo will focus on fostering campus-wide research into artificial intelligence (AI) and provide a portal for organizations to access its extensive expertise in the rapidly growing field.

Launched today, the Waterloo Artificial Intelligence Institute will bring together almost 100 faculty members to tackle practical and fundamental problems brought to them by partners in business, government and the non-profit sector.

Canada’s supply chains will get a powerful new boost from artificial intelligence (AI) as an industry-led network of partners teams up with Waterloo Engineering to help drive economic growth through technological innovation.
