Artificial Intelligence for clerMont – AIM
In the last few years, machine learning has become an increasingly important part of UCA’s research programs. In the last three years, at least 10 thesis on IA have been started and several laboratories are directly involved in a project related to IA. Key investments have been made in computing capacities especially dedicated to IA within the Mésocentre (GPU cluster) (https://mesocentre.uca.fr/) thanks to CPER funding and UCA’s own resource.
The purpose of UCA’s IA program is to strengthen the current IA research projects spread in many areas by creating a pool of resources and knowledge, available to all fields that will benefit from Artificial Intelligence at the service of a coordinated strategy to aim for IA excellence, both in research and training. To achieve this, UCA is working towards :
- 1) increasing the human resources involved in IA research both in the understanding of machine learning and it societal implication as well as exploring new ways to apply machine learning and deep learning in the fields of expertise of UCA : especially agro-system, robotics, health and mobility and natural risk management, 4 main challenges identified by I-SITE Cap 2025. Other key areas of the university area such as medical imaging, genomics, human social sciences (Ethics section; Cognitivism section) will be impacted ;
- 2) investing in more IA dedicated computational capacity of its labs and the Mesocentre ;
- 3) developing IA dedicated training programs for student, and researchers.
The ANR Contrat doctoraux IA Etablissement programme would increase the research power needed to develop our growing expertise into an ongoing support program in the service of the four I-site challenges and emerging IA related research.
