The Office of Research gathered researchers across the system to be part of the Advancing AI Research Working Group to define the current and emerging strengths in AI research at WSU. Led by Assefaw Gebremedhin, associate professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the working group will convene meetings, symposia, and other forums to engage faculty across disciplines to understand the breadth and depth of research areas. The group will also draft a roadmap for enhancing and building AI research at WSU in key growth areas with the potential for far researching benefits and impacts.

The Advancing AI Working Group was established to build upon current strengths at WSU and identify emerging areas of high priority and impact. The group held its first meeting on March 27.
