DSTA and MIT team up for AI research
The two aim to accelerate the progression of AI.
Singapore's Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) announced their collaboration during the Singapore Defence Technology Summit 2021, held from 12 to 15 October.
"In the global emerging technologies field, artificial intelligence (AI) research has been a particularly exciting space on the cusp of game-changing findings and applications. Collaborations with leading research institutions such as MIT ensure that DSTA is primed to translate such innovations into capabilities for defence and beyond," said DSTA Deputy Chief Executive for Information Gayle Chan.
"AI is central to much of our CSAIL research, and I am optimistic about what the future holds. I believe AI will improve our lives in many ways, some of which we've only begun to imagine. Together with DSTA, we can accelerate the pace of progress and put our thought work into tangible technological applications," added CSAIL Director and MIT Professor Daniela Rus.
Joint research projects have commenced and will run for three years.
