About AI Lund

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.


The innovation system around Lund University is strong with organisations like LU innovation, Mobile Heights, MINC, Ideon Innovation and Teknopol.

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), Cellavision (cell classification), WordDiagnostics (mental health assessment), Debricked (Cyber security), Cognibotics (robotics), and Concidera Health (medical follow-up after childhood cancer).

Machine learning and artificial intelligence has been on the curriculum since the 1980’s.

The AI Lund Network

The AI Lund network consists of employees at Lund university and, mostly regional, industry or public sector. For now, the core infrastructure of the network consists of:

  • This web site
  • Moderated mailing lists*:
    • For LU staff (500 subscribers)
    • For not LU staff (900 subscribers)
    • Students at Lund university or other universities (140 subscribers)
  • A contact list of 120 AI Researchers at Lund University
  • To coordinate the activities there is a coordination group.

*If you want a message distributed to any of the mailing lists, please contact one of the moderators: Jonas WisbrantKalle ÅströmJacek MalecStefan Larsson.
