NSF Makes Huge Investment In Eleven New Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes.

NSF is partnering with federal agencies (U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Homeland Security) and private companies (Google, Amazon, Intel and Accenture) to create the National AI Research Institutes.

Each grant provides about $20 million in support to an institute over five years. The 11 new AI Research institutes are:..

AI Institute for Future Edge Networks and Distributed Intelligence. Also headed by the Ohio State University, this institute will use synergies between networking and AI to design new wireless edge networks. It will improve AI “applications in sectors such as intelligent transportation, remote health care, distributed robotics and smart aerospace.” It’s partially funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
