Winners of UF Research’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research Catalyst Fund presented how they are pursuing multidisciplinary applications of artificial intelligence across the university at the Spring 2021 HiPerGator Symposium.
Presenters covered a wide range of topics, sharing how they are using AI to tackle issues like uncovering decades of ecological change to detecting online students who are at risk of dropping out. In the afternoon, attendees and presenters interacted in Q-and-A panels. Roughly 275 people attended the event.
“We established the AI Research Catalyst Fund as a way to encourage multidisciplinary teams of faculty and students to rapidly pursue imaginative applications of AI across the institution,” said David Norton, UF’s vice president for research. “The research shared in this Symposium clearly indicated that is what’s happening. We anticipate that this initial research will lead to significant external research funding in the future.”Learn more about Spring 2021 HiPerGator Symposium Highlights Artificial Intelligence Research.
