The Center for AI Research aims to provide an intellectual environment and primary home for AI research initiatives at NJIT. It aims to promote cutting-edge and high-quality research activities and to cultivate faculty and student publications and patents in AI and machine learning. It will foster collaborations and interactions between professors in fundamental AI research and professors who leverage AI methods to solve domain problems and to develop synergies among research groups across different departments and colleges. It plans to train postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students in fundamental AI research as well as applied AI and prepare them to be a skilled and capable workforce in both academia and industry. The Center for AI Research is part of the Institute for Data Science
