The centre was founded by four VUB research groups: the Artificial Intelligence Lab, Brussels Human Robotic research centre (BruBotics), Studies in Media, Innovation and Technology (SMIT) and Department of Electronics and Informatics (ETRO).
Its goal is ambitious: to become a digital innovation centre for artificial intelligence with international ambitions and local impact. It will make clear and help realise the unique opportunities that AI and robotics offer to the general public and to companies, start-ups, non-profits and other universities and knowledge centres.
