Centre for Machine Intelligence
Creating a better future through AI-driven research, innovation and education.
Supported by a multi-million pound investment from the University of Sheffield, the Centre for Machine Intelligence is a strategic initiative dedicated to the transformation and acceleration of our research, innovation and teaching via Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Bringing together researchers from across the disciplines we will work with the University’s Flagship Research Institutes, Insigneo Institute, Sheffield Robotics and other institutes, centres and networks to tackle some of the greatest global challenges facing society today, such as energy production and security, sustainable food systems, healthy ageing and treating neurological disorders.
Working with our world-leading Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), we will also use AI to transform the efficiency and quality of advanced manufacturing processes.
