Artificial Intelligence


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is concerned with the development of systems that exhibit behavior typically associated with human cognition, such as perceiving, learning, communicating, reasoning, making decisions, and acting in a physical and social environment. AI research at Columbia CS focuses on machine learning, natural language and speech processing, computer vision, robotics, and security.

AI researchers collaborate widely within the university and beyond, contributing to applications in medicine, public safety, law, journalism, and other areas. Some AI faculty are cross-listed with the Statistics department, Electrical Engineering department, and the Data Science Institute.
