27 New Faculty Hires in Artificial Intelligence at UAlbany
In light of a $75 million allocation from New York State for the Albany Artificial Intelligence Supercomputing Initiative (Albany AI), UAlbany has launched a strategic cluster hire of 27 new faculty with a focus on AI in multiple disciplines, including public health, engineering, education, business, homeland security, STEM, and political science among others.
The creation of an Institute for Artificial Intelligence at UAlbany will also bring a search for a world-renowned Institute Director. This hiring initiative is possible thanks to a $5.2 million allocation to UAlbany from a $53 million SUNY-wide faculty hiring initiative. These new hires, together with the 22 ongoing faculty searches will result in 49 new faculty in Fall 2023, an exciting and unprecedented venture for the university.
AI supercomputing promises to transform healthcare, drug discovery, climate and extreme weather resilience, transportation, national security and cybersecurity, big data, internet of things (loT), and robotics, as well as bringing unprecedented changes to education.
The Albany AI Supercomputing Initiative brings together assets and expertise from educational, industrial, and public health partners. Albany AI also aims to educate the next generation of diverse, well-trained AI researchers and practitioners in new mechanical and design programs, as well as programs in AI computing, educational research and ethical considerations. This initiative will ensure that UAlbany students are competitive for new and emerging markets.
