Welcome to AI!

The mission of Skoltech Center for Artificial Intelligence Technology (Skoltech AI) is to create, study and disseminate transformative Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.

We perform research to solve main AI challenges, develop state-of-the art AI computational algorithms and technologies, build prototypes of AI based products. The CREI educates AI leaders for national economy. We actively participate in Government initiatives such as NTI, National Projects and Strategies in the areas of AI. As the leading Skolkovo ecosystem knowledge hub we offer all kinds of consulting support and expertise sharing with Skolkovo startups and companies.

We focus to solve the long-term grand challenges of AI: how to make it robust? how to make it interpretable? what does it learn? does it really learn? why does it learn?  how to learn from small data?
