The National Police Lab AI is a collaborative initiative of the Dutch Police, Utrecht University and the University of Amsterdam. Together we aim to develop state-of-the-art AI techniques to improve the safety in the Netherlands in a socially, legally and ethically responsible way. In the Lab we work on techniques across the full breadth of AI. At the University of Amsterdam, machine-learning techniques for extracting the right information from different sources such as photos, text and video are developed. Utrecht University focuses on models from symbolic AI that allow us to reason with and communicate this information.

Utrecht AI & Mobility Lab is a collaboration between Utrecht University, ProRail, Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) and Qbuzz. The lab focuses on innovative AI techniques for various mobility domains such as public transportation, intelligent infrastructure, and mobility behaviour of the public. Traffic movements of people and goods have grown steadily over the years posing major challenges in terms of safety, accessibility, throughput and emissions. The mission of this lab is to meet these challenges by developing innovative AI techniques. In particular, the mobility lab contributes to the fundamental and applied research by developing and integrating data- and model-driven techniques for the optimization of logistics processes such as train schedules and goods transport, personalized online services, decision-support systems for policy and management in the field of mobility and transport, and the construction of intelligent infrastructure for monitoring and controlling traffic.
