Insight: AIAI is a technology transfer organisation that promotes the application of Artificial Intelligence research for the benefit of commercial, industrial, and government clients. AIAI has considerable experience of working with small innovative companies, and with research groups in larger corporations.

AIAI specialises in Intelligent Systems - systems making use of the knowledge of experts, or systems that learn.

AI technologies AIAI transfers to commerce and industry are:

case-based reasoning: a technique for utilising past experiences and existing corporate resources such as databases to guide diagnosis and fault finding;

genetic algorithms: an adaptive search technique with very broad applicability in scheduling, optimization, and model adaptation;

planning and workflow: the modelling, task setting, planning, execution, monitoring and coordination of activities;

intelligent systems: the methodology of building knowledge-based systems.

Innovative applications are created using these technologies.

AIAI is part of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Computational Linguistics, Computer Science and Software Engineering.
