SRI International’s Artificial Intelligence Center advances the most critical areas of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. We develop methods for building intelligent systems that can learn, perceive and interact with the world, both autonomously and in collaboration with humans.
Core AI technologies and applications
At SRI, our researchers work together across disciplines to deliver on the promise of AI and machine learning. We create leading-edge technologies and explore their deployment across a broad range of application areas.
SENSING AND ANALYTICS
Scene recognition and understanding
Person recognition and tracking
Mapping and localization
Text understanding and summarization
REASONING AND PROBLEM SOLVING
Adaptive planning and resource allocation
Decision-making under uncertainty
Deep learning for language, image processing
Learning from demonstration
Hybrid logic/learning architectures
Learning causal models
A powerful legacy; a visionary future
SRI’s Artificial Intelligence Center has driven seminal breakthroughs in AI since the earliest days of the field, including the first mobile-robot (Shakey) and the widely used A* and RANSAC algorithms. Our researchers build on this legacy as we continue to push the boundaries of AI in autonomy, bioinformatics, personal assistants and machine learning.
“SRI’s got that rare mix of people, creativity, technical diversity and excellence, and flexibility to pursue longer-range goals. Of course there are no guarantees, but SRI provides the tools for a motivated person to make things happen.”
