Overview

Khalifa University’s Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute was established in July 2019 to bring all the university’s research in robotics, artificial intelligence, data science, next-gen networks, semiconductor technologies and cybersecurity under a single umbrella.

Its mission is to conduct applied and fundamental research and development of the key technologies required to bring the UAE significantly closer to reaching its goal of becoming a global hub for Artificial Intelligence innovation.

Through its Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute, Khalifa University is positioning robotics and Artificial Intelligence as a central focus of its integrated academic and research activities, which it is further developing by channeling the broad expertise of its faculty.

Under its three main research thrusts – Robotics, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Hardware – the Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute is pioneering use-inspired projects with the aim to provide commercial value locally and globally.

By leveraging its robust expertise in ICT, data analytics and robotics research, and partnering with the region’s leading industry experts in the field, the Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute is set to develop the innovative technologies needed to achieve the UAE’s AI transformation goals.
