Research

The scale of the research effort between MIT and IBM is unprecedented in industry and academia. We’ve already made exciting progress, funding and launching more than 50 projects selected from 186 high-quality proposals received from nearly every MIT department. We believe these initiatives could drive some of the most significant advancements in AI.
