As of 1st December 2019, CISA (Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications) is changing its name to Artificial Intelligence and its Applications Institute (AIAI).

The change reflects CISA’s history and identity and builds upon the historical and distinguished record set by the Artificial Intelligence Applications Institute, currently part of CISA.

CISA’s research focuses on AI and its applications across areas that are both symbolic and probabilistic and align with the Third Wave of AI. The Institute’s strong ties with AI is longstanding with most of its core research being in AI for decades now (whether as CISA or its predecessor(s)).

CISA recognises that there are other crucial AI stakeholders within Informatics and CISA's change of name by no means impacts on that recognition.

CISA/AIAI is a community of researchers working on the foundations of artificial intelligence and autonomous systems, and their application to real-world problems.

Current research in the Institute is focussed on the following topics:

  • Knowledge representation and reasoning
  • Automated and interactive theorem proving
  • Decision making in autonomous agents and multi-agent systems
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Facilitating collaboration in data-intensive research
  • AI for privacy, fairness, and ethical reasoning
