Aalto University is establishing a multidisciplinary House of AI centre to produce scientific research and practical applications in the field of artificial intelligence. The core of the House of AI's activities is high-quality scientific research and close collaboration between researchers and companies. Research knowledge about artificial intelligence is utilised in novel applications in different fields using rapid piloting methods.

The establishment of the centre was made possible by a EUR 3.2 million donation to Aalto University by the Technology Industries of Finland Centennial Foundation.

With the House of AI, Aalto University's artificial intelligence research will expand even more comprehensively to collaborate with other disciplines and industry. The multidisciplinary and long-term expertise of the university and its international networks in technology, art, and business provide a strong foundation for the development and application of artificial intelligence.

Utilising the potential of artificial intelligence in an ethically sustainable manner is essential to solving both Finland's competitiveness challenges and global sustainability issues. The use of artificial intelligence is increasing rapidly worldwide and there are constantly new areas of application emerging. Multidisciplinarity offers a lot of new opportunities for artificial intelligence research. The activities of the House of AI also support the education of multidisciplinary developers and users of artificial intelligence methods.

The application areas that are important for solving sustainability challenges are a priority for the House of AI. A collaborative project is being launched including one on the future of electrical energy systems, involving electrical engineering, economics and artificial intelligence research.

Aalto University already has very strong expertise and networks in AI research. Aalto coordinates the extensive activities of the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence (FCAI) and plays an important role in the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) network.

Researchers develop a new way to instruct dance in Virtual Reality

The researchers started by experimenting with visualisation techniques familiar from previous dance games. But after several prototypes and stages, they decided to try out the audience wave, familiar from sporting events, to guide the dance.
