What is Artificial Intelligence?
What is LAIA?
LAIA (Lab for Artificial Intelligence and its Applications) is a physical space (a research lab) and a community of practice (CoP) in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Coppin State University, led by Dr. Leshell Hatley.
Within it, student research scientists collaborate to enhance their skills by learning, using, and creating technologies (software and hardware) to improve the community around us.
These technologies focus on applications of Artificial Intelligence and related computing technologies.
Our research foci:
1. Expert Systems/Intelligent Tutoring Systems
2. Intelligent Robotics
3. Computer Science & Engineering Education
4. Undergraduate Research Experiences
*To enhance students’ skills in collaboration, communication (all forms), research, design, and development/implementation;
*To expose students to a rigorous research agenda focused on the theory and practical uses of Artificial Intelligence and related fields;
*To foster and promote development and innovation related to the application of Artificial Intelligence (theory and ethics) to learning technology, games, and robotics and other automated technologies; and
*To provide educational experiences in computer science and engineering and mentorship to PreK-16 students in Baltimore City, especially regarding programming, game design, and robotics.
