Atlanta home to three of 11 NSF-funded Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes

Three of the 11 National Science Foundation (NSF) Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes will be located in Atlanta, two operated by the Georgia Institute of Technology and the third under the purview of the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA).

Each of the 11 Institutes are receiving $20 million in funding. Led by NSF, and in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Google, Amazon, Intel, and Accenture, the  Institutes will act as connections in a broader nationwide network to pursue transformational advances in a range of economic sectors, and science and engineering fields — from food system security to next-generation edge networks.

In addition to Georgia Tech and GRA, other operators are the University of California San Diego, Duke University, Iowa State University, North Carolina State University, The Ohio State University, and University of Washington.
