Artificial Intelligence Center FEE CTU

Creating AI future for people

AI Center (AIC) is an academic institution conducting excellent research in the field of artificial intelligence with strong emphasis on applications. We are located at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague.

Founded in 2001 by Michal Pěchouček, AIC has grown to become a world-class research center employing over 70 researchers from all over the world with various backgrounds.

Together, we cover the following research areas and application domains: game theory, robotics, automated planning, machine learning, optimization, cybersecurity and smart mobility.

Moon is the limit

Our main focus is on moonshots – technological and scientific problems whose relevance reaches far into the future. What do we mean by that? We are fascinated by the challenges our society will face 10 or 20 years from now. Like the fact that once everyone has an autonomous vehicle, we will have to prevent traffic jams with algorithms. Or that you need sophisticated AI systems to fight advanced non-human cybercriminals.

Michal Pěchouček, Director of AIC (and the chief moonshooter).

Society comes first

Technology should also have a positive impact on everyday life. Therefore we've always studied AI in context in order to achieve not only scientific but also real-world impact. Our mantra is: Never isolate AI research from the outside world! Do you need a proof? Our algorithms make Wi-Fi routers safer, decrease the amount of carbon dioxide in cities, predict the impact of multi-drone surveillance and facilitate automated journalism.

Cybersecurity research team led by Sebastián García.

High application potencial

We cooperate with both domestic and international grant agencies, small and large corporations, non-profits, government and prestigious foreign universities. We also had been funded for over 15 years by the US Department of Defense. And during the existence of AIC, we launched 5 successful startups.

It is very important to us that the results of our work are applied in the industry. If you want to join forces and establish a joint research lab, check out our Industry Collaboration page.

Research exellence

In our two decades history, we published in the Science journal, presented our fundamental as well as application research at prestigious conferences all over the world, our team was successful in the DARPA robotic challenge and we are constantly receiving calls for interesting projects and scientific challenges. We believe there are no limits. Do you?
