Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence
AI and Machine Learning Research at Stevens
The Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence advances the fundamentals and applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning research to solve complex problems that advance technology — and make the world a better place. Launched in 2018, SIAI is Stevens’ newest and largest center. It is comprised of more than 100 engineering, business, systems and design experts from across the university who share a collaborative research.
Artificial intelligence is transforming the world and industry as we know it, and the future of AI remains seemingly limitless. In a world where AI-enabled innovation continues to rapidly evolve, SIAI and its Stevens collaborators will synergistically develop solutions to real-world problems.
Founded on that premise, the Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence envisions the exploration of opportunities to advance AI and machine learning to serve humanity and to improve disciplines such as healthcare, business operations, the workplace and education.
This vision will flourish through the convergence of faculty research, the positive impact of partner organizations and agencies, foundational research sponsors like the National Science Foundation, National Institutes for Health and the Department of Defense; and the deployment of AI and machine learning solutions for business advantage, social good, and national security.

Brendan Englot, SIAI Director
Dr. Brendan Englot (Geoffrey S. Inman Junior Professor, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and SIAI Director) has fifteen years of experience developing and deploying mobile robots and autonomous navigation algorithms via land, air and sea. His research uses artificial intelligence to improve the situational awareness of mobile robots operating in degraded conditions, and to enable intelligent robot decision-making under uncertainty. His work in A.I. is supported by the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, the U.S. Army, and various sponsors in industry.
SIAI’s corporate partners benefit from the breadth of knowledge of more than 100 affiliated faculty members to address ongoing initiatives and new endeavors.
