AIM Lab

The AIM Lab (AI for Medical Imaging) is a collaborative initiative of the Inception Institute of Artificial Intelligence from the United Arab Emirates and the University of Amsterdam. Together they will focus on using artificial intelligence for medical image recognition. Over the next five years, seven PhD researchers will work in the lab on projects that will focus, among other things, on achieving a quicker diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, modelling cardiac rhythms and on generating automatic reports based on X-ray images.

Elsevier AI Lab

The Elsevier AI Lab is a collaboration between Elsevier, the University of Amsterdam and VU University Amsterdam. This collaboration allows Elsevier’s data scientists to work closer with data scientists in academia, contribute to education and science, and pursue a PhD. Academics in turn gain a better understanding of how AI is used to innovate research platforms to solve real-world societal problems.

QUVA Lab

QUVA Lab is a collaboration between Qualcomm and the University of Amsterdam. The mission of QUVA lab is to perform world-class research on deep vision. Such vision strives to automatically interpret with the aid of deep learning what happens where, when and why in images and video. Deep learning is a form of machine learning with neural networks, loosely inspired by how neurons process information in the brain (see side bar). Research projects in the lab will focus on learning to recognize objects in images from a single example, personalized event detection and summarization in video, and privacy preserving deep learning.

Atlas Lab

Atlas Lab is a collaboration between TomTom and the University of Amsterdam. Atlas Lab will focus on using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for developing advanced, highly accurate and safe high definition (HD) maps for self-driving vehicles. In collaboration with location technology specialist, TomTom (TOM2), the UvA is embarking on research on the use of AI for creating HD maps suitable for all levels of autonomous driving.
