Artificial intelligence at Umeå University

At Umeå University, artificial intelligence has been a scientific field since the 1970’s. For the next ten years, our aim is to substantially expand AI research and education across all faculties and subjects.

In order to provide students, partners and society with the knowledge that will be needed in the future, Umeå University is putting a long-term strategic stake on AI research and education.

Together with research environments at other Swedish universities and institutions, and with substantial support from national funding agencies, the goal is to push Sweden into an internationally leading position in artificial intelligence.
