Celebrating IU’s leadership in human-centered artificial intelligence


Indiana University continues to lead the way in AI-based initiatives that strengthen opportunities for collaborative research, education, and workforce development.

The launch of IU’s Accelerating Imagination initiative demonstrates our longstanding leadership in human-centered artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, and data science. Bringing together top experts from the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering and the Luddy Artificial Intelligence Center, which includes dozens of IU labs and centers, this initiative will greatly expand the impact and reach of IU’s AI research. Accelerating Imagination builds upon other initiatives like IUPUI’s Institute of Integrative AI and will lead to enhanced collaboration among IU students, faculty, and staff and deepen our work with government agencies, partner institutions, and emerging industries.

Faculty and experts from a diverse range of disciplines across IU recently participated in a panel hosted by the Learning Technologies division of University Information Technology Services. Moderated by Adam Maksl, associate professor of journalism and media at IU Southeast and co-director of IU’s university-wide digital literacy initiative, the panel examined opportunities and challenges presented by generative AI programs in higher education like ChatGPT.

Finally, with the rapid growth of automation and robotics across industries, we are seeing massive job opportunities in AI programming, data science, engineering, and research. IU South Bend’s AI Machine Learning Bootcamp offers a six-month comprehensive training course for those pursuing advanced AI and machine learning careers. It offers 300+ hours of in-depth training in key concepts, models, and programming skills, placing graduates in the top tier of the highly competitive AI market.

Thanks to the exceptional work of our faculty and staff, the scale of IU’s AI programs and initiatives will continue to grow — with positive impacts on research, education, and workforce development.
