Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The emerging field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a strategic growth area for UMaine. The mission of the AI initiative is to develop, through innovative and coordinated research, education, and strategic partnerships, transformative AI-based solutions that enhance the social and economic well-being of the citizens of Maine and beyond. Ten fellowships will be offered to students who apply through the CUGR AY 2021 Fellowship form. Students from any discipline who are focused on artificial intelligence will be considered for this fellowship when working with a faculty mentor. Pandemic related research proposals will be given special consideration. A few funding slots have been allocated to this category.
