AIMI is all about collaboration. AIMI’s paid membership model allows our industry partners to propose areas where AI research can positively impact businesses and society. AIMI members establish topics for calls for proposals, then Penn State researchers propose AI and ML solutions. AIMI partners help to select projects to fund, with all members sharing intellectual property of the funded projects.
