AI Lund is an interdisciplinary network for research, education and innovation in the field of Artificial Intelligence. It is coordinated by Lund University and open to members from academia, industry, public sector and other organisations. The network has been formed to consolidate these activities and simplify contacts with students, industry and society as a whole.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning and has been on the curriculum at Lund University since the 1980’s. Today, AI Lund represents a multidisciplinary research and innovation network, of particular relevance for the increasingly applied versions of AI & ML in our everyday lives, technologies and platforms.
Beyond being a research area of its own, AI & ML is therefore also representing a set of methodologies with vast potential for innovations and business development as well as for research within disciplines like medicine, social sciences, the humanities, and more.
In addition, AI Lund also represents scholarship on challenges and consequences of AI & ML as applied in society - such as ethical, cultural or legal.
Examples of start-ups from Lund that develop and use AI and machine learning include Qlik (big data analytics and visualization), Axis (video analytics), Precise Biometrics (fingerprint reader), Hövding (world's first airbag bicycle helmet), Polar Rose (Face recognition), and Cellavision (cell classification). Machine learning and artificial intelligence has been on the curriculum since the 1980’s.
