The Objectives of the Centre

This centre aims to create an internationally connected and globally recognised centre of excellence for the training of postgraduate students and the up-skilling of industry-based staff in key technical topics in artificial intelligence. The initiative will provide training in areas related to ethics in artificial intelligence and data analytics, as well as challenges in fairness and transparency of advanced data-driven applications. The SFI Centre for Research Training (CRT) brings together supervisors working across the full spectrum of AI techniques from knowledge representation and reasoning, machine learning, data mining, computer vision, natural language processing, optimisation and decision-making, robotics, and autonomy. The CRT will focus strongly on the development of AI solutions in domains such as smart buildings, mobility and transportation, autonomous vehicles, public service delivery, manufacturing, enterprise, cybersecurity, climate change and environment, agriculture, marine, food production, and natural resources.
