Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

Machine learning, the core technology underlying many recent breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence (AI), is one of the strengths of Aalto University, with a long history starting from neural network pioneers Teuvo Kohonen and Erkki Oja.

Today, AI is rapidly changing the society, and our mission is to contribute to the change with key technologies to seize the opportunities. We are in an excellent position to do so with our critical mass of expertise, not only in machine learning but also other key technologies in computational logic, algorithms, data science, and with our effective collaboration network with other fields in Aalto and internationally. The department is a key player in the Finnish Centre for Artificial Intelligence FCAI and in the AI initiatives being launched by the Finnish Government.
