German technology company Bosch is establishing a Center for Artificial Intelligence at Carnegie Mellon University and investing $8 million over five years in research at the school, the company announced. The AI center is Bosch’s fourth worldwide and second in the U.S.  

The center will research ways artificial intelligence can be used to bolster technology in mobility, consumer goods, industry, energy and buildings. “We at Carnegie Mellon are excited to be working with Bosch to find new ways to use artificial intelligence to improve lives and to develop the next generation of AI scientists,” said Andrew Moore, dean of CMU’s School of Computer Science.

Bosch also announced that it hired Zico Kolter, an assistant professor at CMU’s School of Computer Science, as its chief AI scientist. Kolter will continue to teach and perform research at CMU in addition to his duties at Bosch. His research has focused on using machine learning in energy and sustainability.

“We’re excited to establish BCAI Research in Pittsburgh with Zico Kolter as part of the long-term collaboration between CMU and Bosch,” said Christoph Peylo, global head of the Bosch AI centers. “CMU, with its tradition as one of the leading institutions in AI research, is an important pillar in BCAI‘s mission to develop safe, robust and secure AI for Bosch products and services.”
