Over the course of 2020-2021 TU Delft will be establishing a total of 24 TU Delft AI-labs where experts in AI foundations work together with experts in AI challenges. Through these Delft AI-labs, expertise and innovation in AI, Data & Digitalisation is used to advance expertise and innovation with AI, Data & Digitalisation, thereby increasing the impact of AI at TU Delft in science, design engineering and society.
Each of these labs consists of at least two starting academic staff members and four joint PhDs, for a total of 24 newly starting faculty members and 96 new PhD students. For the greater part, staff for the labs is funded through the university’s talent investment program. The Delft AI-labs embody the bridges that are being built between research in and with AI, Data and Digitalisation and foster cross-fertilization between talents and expertise.
