AI imprinted on a computer chip

Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence

The Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence (SIAI) is an interdisciplinary, tech-driven collaboration of engineering, business, systems and design experts working toward solving pressing global problems in industry and the world. 

Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence is composed of more than 100 faculty members from all academic units at Stevens (engineering, business, systems and arts & music) researching a variety of applications in AI and machine learning. SIAI hopes to amplify the impact of its research and analysis through collaborations with industry, government, foundations and academic partners.

Our Vision

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.

Our Research Focus Areas

SIAI serves as an anchor for cross-disciplinary collaboration at Stevens, demonstrating the expertise of numerous affiliated faculty who are working to make AI research a pillar of strength and specialization for the university and it provides a hub for Stevens’ wide range of AI education and outreach programs. Our faculty research falls in the following areas:

  • Art and Music

  • Cognitive Networking and Computing

  • Cybersecurity

  • Environment and Energy

  • Fintech

  • Foundations of AI & Machine Learning

  • Healthcare & Biomedical

  • Robotics, Perception & Human-Machine Interaction

  • Societal Impact

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.
