Artificial Intelligence

All-in on AI.
In the next millennium, the biggest advances in human innovation may not be human at all.

From natural language processing to drug discovery, artificial intelligence is playing an increasing role in our daily lives. That’s why we’ve created an entire center dedicated to this emerging field, centralizing research and synergizing efforts to explore its full potential.

Here, we empower and support advancements in AI by leveraging NCSA’s cutting-edge technology and expertise, and facilitating collaboration across multiple disciplines including agriculture, astrophysics, automotive, big data and infrastructure. And, it’s why we’re the choice for critical projects like mitigating the impact of COVID-19.

Research Scientist

Aiman is a spatial data scientist who works with physical and social big data.

The share of geospatial big data significantly increased because it is easy to record location and time information for every collected data. NCSA’s facilities and cross-disciplinary culture provides me with the means for utilizing big data to support the sustainable development of our community and industrial partners.
