Core Areas

Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab (SAIL), founded in 1962 by Professor John McCarthy, continues to be a rich, intellectual and stimulating academic environment. Through multidisciplinary and multi-faculty collaborations, SAIL promotes new discoveries and explores new ways to enhance human-robot interactions through AI; all while developing the next generation of researchers. SAIL has been a center of excellence for Artificial Intelligence research, teaching, theory, and practice for over fifty years.
