Building an AI Powered Future

Artificial Intelligence, augmented reality, machine learning, and other emerging tools are revolutionizing the way we work, play, and live our lives. The University of Florida is launching a new initiative to advance and apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) across the enterprise as a fundamental pillar of our academic pursuits.

This initiative will train our graduates for an AI-enabled world through new university-wide curricula. In addition, UF anticipates enhancing our research computing environment with some of the nation’s most advanced AI machinery. In combination with the latest version of HiPerGator 3.0 (January 2021), UF will have the very best and fastest AI supercomputer in U.S. higher education.

It is our intent to:

  1. build supercomputing resources in AI to tackle challenging real-world problems,
  2. become a model for “AI across the curriculum,” where any UF student who wishes to graduate equipped to engage AI in their discipline can do so, and,
  3. use this initiative to create a model for AI workforce development that can serve as a template for other colleges and universities in Florida and across the U.S.
