The artificial intelligence group studies the computational mechanisms underlying intelligent behavior. We are active in a wide variety of research areas, including machine learning, natural language processing, probabilistic reasoning, automated planning, machine reading, and intelligent user interfaces. UW CSE is one of the leading centers for AI research in the world, as demonstrated by our track record at the top conferences in our field, individual student and faculty honors, and high-profile research collaborations such as our work with the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2).
