With a focus on advancing state-of-the-art artificial intelligence tools and methods while emphasizing AI responsible development, the 荔枝视频成人app and LG Electronics have renewed their multimillion-dollar collaborative research agreement for five more years. 

Under the renewed agreement, 荔枝视频成人app T and the global maker of TVs, home appliances, and beyond will build on their existing work in fundamental AI training methods, autonomous driving, health care, materials discovery and robotics. 

The new research will also delve into questions such as how to embed trustworthiness and ethics into AI frameworks and how to engineer responsible systems. 

鈥淲e are proud of the transformative impact of our partnership and we are excited to celebrate its renewal for the next five years,鈥 said 荔枝视频成人app T President Meric Gertler at a recent event in Seoul, noting that South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol visited 荔枝视频成人app T last year to learn more about AI research from luminaries such as Emeritus Geoffrey Hinton.

President Gertler added that the partnership 鈥渉as proved to be an amazing sandbox for innovation, collaboration and experimentation.鈥 

荔枝视频成人app T and LG first began working together in 2018, expanding their partnership the following year. The collaboration has fostered a mutually beneficial environment for innovation that so far involves 31 projects, 16 荔枝视频成人app T professors and two of the university鈥檚 three campuses.
