Global judgements and ideas.

Leicester Artificial Intelligence Network (LAIN)

Leicester Artificial Intelligence Network (LAIN)

LAIN brings together expertise from diverse fields and is the University of Leicester’s first such platform to promote interdisciplinary collaborations pivoting on artificial intelligence (AI). The technological applications of AI have spread from autonomous agents and robots to social and economic domains for decision-making, which start to shape the very social fabrics of the human existence. Only diverse perspectives and research methods can fully grasp the technological, economic, political and social gravity of AI for the future of societies.

LAIN was founded by 18 faculty from 10 different departments and 3 different colleges. The initial founding members have expertise in fields of intelligent mobility and technology and work. The network exists to grow and facilitate constructive collaborations. It aims to:

1) bring together researchers across all colleges at the University of Leicester studying different (technical, social, legal, and business-related) aspects of AI

2) lay the ground for developing innovative cross-disciplinary research agendas among interested researchers at Leicester and beyond.
