Meet the Researcher
Chat with researchers and learn about their latest projects.
MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab
MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) pioneers new research in computing that improves the way people work, play and learn - empowering people and enhancing all human experiences.
- Curios Robots led by Caris Moses, MIT
- Al Coders led by Shashank Srikant, MIT
- Rachel Gordon, MIT CSAIL
The Engine is an early-stage venture firm conceived and created by MIT to address the unmet need for sustained support for startups with the potential to solve complex, existential challenges and make material, positive impact on society. Propelled out of MIT in 2016, and independently managed and operated, The Engine was designed as an “innovation orchard” where Tough Tech founders received the capital, knowledge, network connections and access to specialized equipment they needed to develop and commercialize foundational, disruptive technology. The Engine’s focus on world positive capitalism eliminates the boundaries of innovation and serves as a catalyst for new fields, enabling our founders to drive meaningful forward progress for the world.
- AI-enabled Route Planning led by Alex Wallar, The Routing Company
- From the Lab to the Warehouse Yard led by Yibiao Zhao, ISEE
- Reed Sturtevant, The Engine
Attend these explainer sessions led by MIT faculty to better understand technologies being explored on the mainstage.
Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions
The Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions (IAIFI) is one of the National Science Foundation's inaugural AI research institutes, involving investigators from MIT, Harvard, Northeastern, and Tufts. Working at the intersection of AI and fundamental physics, the IAIFI will advance physics knowledge from the smallest building blocks of nature to the largest structures in the Universe and galvanize AI research innovation.
- Artificial Intelligence Meets Fundamental Physics led by Jesse Thaler, MIT
- Machine Learning with Fundamental Symmetries led by Phiala Shanahan, MIT
- Synthesizing Knowledge via Reinforcement Learning led by Pulkit Agrawal, MIT
