What is LAIA?
LAIA is a physical space (a research lab) and a community of practice in the Department of Math and Computer Science, led by Dr. Leshell Hatley, at Coppin State University.
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 (big data analysis, automation, efficiency, etc.).
*To enhance students’ skills in collaboration, communication (all forms), research, design, and development;
*To expose students to a rigorous research agenda focused on the theory and practical uses of Artificial Intelligence;
*To foster and promote development and innovation related to the application of Artificial Intelligence theory to learning technology, games, and robotics; and
*To provide Computer Science education (CSEd) mentorship and experiences to K-12 students in Baltimore, especially regarding programming, game design, and robotics.
