NSF Funds A3D3 Institute to Integrate AI into Scientific Research, with Professor Shlizerman as PI

Submitted by Jack Coughlin on

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced a $15M grant funding the Accelerated AI Algorithms for Data-Driven Discovery Institute, or A3D3 Institute. The aim of the institute will be to integrate AI tools into the scientific research and discovery process, helping scientists deal with the large and complex datasets that play an increasingly important role in fields from particle physics to epidemiology.

Associate Professor Eli Shlizerman of the Applied Mathematics Department will be one of the PIs of the A3D3 Institute, which is a collaboration between nine universities led by the UW. Together with Eli, UW PIs include Associate Professor Shih-Chieh Hsu of the Physics Department, Professor Scott Hauck of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Assistant Professor Amy Orsborn of Bioengineering and ECE. Professor Hsu will direct the institute.
