The past year has been one of growth for CHAI, with several new faculty joining and a record number of new projects.
Our center creates an environment for faculty collaboration in both AI fundamentals and applications. With focus on human-aware AI, CHAI faculty are in a unique position to address emerging issues when AI is deployed in practice. The AI potential for innovation and scholarship is sure to benefit our faculty’s research and enhance the student experiences.
I would like to thank our center faculty and their students for all their contributions. Without them CHAI would not be what it is today. I am also grateful to Dr. Ryne Raffaelle, Vice President for Research, Dr. Ellen Granberg, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Dr. David Munson, RIT President, for their continued support and encouragement. Finally, I want to thank our many collaborators from government and industry that make our research relevant and put it to good use. I look forward to working with all of you to advance AI with a human touch at RIT.
