Artificial Intelligence Research Institute for Science and Engineering

Pioneering AI

Clemson researchers have deployed artificial intelligence to protect self-driving vehicles from cyberattacks, inspect vehicles for defects as they travel an assembly line, safeguard reputations on social media, detect cyberbullying, and diagnose Alzheimer's disease earlier than currently possible. With over 100 affiliate faculty from over 30 disciplines, AIRISE serves as the umbrella for pioneering AI research, education, and STEM workforce development at Clemson University.

Through AIRISE, Clemson will continue to advance AI research in advanced manufacturing, materials science, biomedical data science and informatics, cyberinfrastructure, intelligent transportation, and a wide variety of other disciplines.

Applications of artificial intelligence (or AI) are pervasive and continue to be woven into all aspects of our lives. By combining all of Clemson's resources in one institute, AIRISE will promote Clemson's AI-related research nationally and prepare students to meet the pressing demand for elite AI talent.
