Shenzhen Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics for Society
Shenzhen Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics for Society (AIRS) is one of the top ten basic research institutions in Shenzhen. It was sponsored by seven world's leading robotics and artificial intelligence research institutions, including the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) Robotics and Intelligent Manufacturing Research Institute, MIT. College of Computer and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute, University of Pennsylvania GRASP Laboratory, Stanford University Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Zurich Institute of Technology Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute, Edinburgh University School of Information.
For furthering specific AI technologies research, AIRS will establish five joint research centers (the first batch), focusing on two categories of common AI technologies, which are machine learning and AI architecture, computer vision, as well as three system platforms, which are intelligent transportation system, service robot and artificial intelligence application. Since then, according to the development of the institute, we plan to set up other joint research centers and build up open platforms where gathers top teams. Meanwhile, SRIAIR sets up open research topics, which is based on institute guideline and is opened for application of research institutes in Shenzhen, and cooperates with a least one oversea initiator for participation.
Based on the strategic needs of Shenzhen, Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and the country, and relying on the Chinese university of Hong Kong (Shenzhen), the institute will create an international open research institute, which will continuously attract and gather the world's best scientists, and carry out research on originality, commonality and key technologies. It will promote technology integration and application, for becoming artificial intelligence and robotics industry propeller; It will build a gathering place for high-end talents of intelligent system, and strongly promote Shenzhen to be a global core city of artificial intelligence technology and industrial development.
