Research in the spotlight: Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Swedish research in artificial intelligence at Linköping University was the brainchild of pioneer Erik Sandevall. AI will change our lives and our behaviour. This is why our researchers continue to take on contemporary challenges by putting people firmly in the centre of the development of AI.

We are far from being able to share our public spaces with flying drones in complete safety. Professor Patrick Doherty and his doctoral student Olov Andersson conduct advanced AI research into the topic, and in this film they show how to ensure that a drone avoids an unpredictable human. The research is part of the Wallenberg AI Autonomous Systems and Software Program, WASP.
