Enter the Matrix in Texas

The University of Texas at San Antonio launches the Matrix AI Consortium

According to an article in the Rivard Report the 30th of July it seems UTSA is set to launch a research centre within the field of artificial intelligence.

  • Christopher Mentzer of Southwest Research Institute and Murtuza Jadliwala of UTSA computer science will lead the area of machine learning and deployment, which will look at which algorithms are best for solving a problem and then applying AI to address it.
  • Neuro-inspired AI will look at how AI can be used to better study the human brain and how it can further imitate human problem-solving. It will be led by Peter Fox of UT Health San Antonio research imaging and Fidel Santamaria of UTSA biology.
  • Nicole Beebe, of UTSA information systems and cybersecurity, and Ram Krishnan, of UTSA electrical and computer engineering, will focus on trustworthy AI — on how to make AI better at overall problem solving and having more reliable outcomes.
