The University of Southampton in the U.K. recently launched the Center for Machine Intelligence (CMI), bringing together researchers and practitioners in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomous systems to develop a coherent approach to research and technology transfer.

Discussions at the launch event focused on these various technologies' application in large-scale Internet of Things systems and in the insurance and social care sectors.

Research groups within the CMI will focus on the theoretical aspects of machine intelligence, including the Agents, Interaction, and Complexity group, and the Vision, Learning, and Control group.

"The formation of the CMI is an important next step at a time of great advances in this field and we look forward to working with industry, policymakers and the general public as we address both national and global challenges," says Southampton professor Sarvapali Ramchurn, who will head the CMI.
