The C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute (C3.ai DTI) was recently established by C3.ai, Microsoft, the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Carnegie Mellon University, University of Chicago, MIT, and Princeton University. The goal of the Institute is to catalyze cooperative research activities to accelerate advances in research, combining machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), management science, ethics, and public policy to transform and enhance the quality of life in societal systems at large.
C3.ai DTI's first call for proposals, due May 1, 2020, targets research that addresses the application of AI and machine learning to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, rigorous approaches to design sampling and testing strategies, and methods to improve societal resilience in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, among other areas relevant to pandemic mitigation.
For full details, see the First Call for Proposals: Mitigation of COVID-19 and Future Pandemics.
