Funding a fourth year of AI-related innovation
We are pleased to announce funding for about two dozen new research projects in the coming year. A handful of our accepted proposals this time will focus on scalable real-world applications: translating computer-aided analysis of medical images to improve surgery outcomes; balancing risk and returns in a financial portfolio; and managing traffic in a hybrid system of autonomous and human-driven vehicles. This new work comes on top of the Lab-sponsored AI-related projects announced last spring to address the pandemic and its aftermath. We thank you for supporting the Lab, and wish you a healthy and productive semester ahead.
