In the EAISI research track, TU/e-researchers and partners will present their latest findings, specifically around the theme of human-centered AI. Because, not coincidentally, EAISI specifically leverages the university's expertise in Human-Computer Interaction and Ethics as a core competence, aside of Data Science and Engineering Systems. Please join the discussions and get to know in detail what is happening in the center of Brainport’s AI research.

In 2019, Eindhoven University of Technology decided to give an impulse to its ambitions in the field of Artificial Intelligence by launching the Eindhoven AI Systems Institute. EAISI serves as an accelerator and facilitator for researching and developing practical AI solutions in the fields of mobility, health, and high-tech systems.
