The Future of AI
Starts Here

Artificial intelligence technology enables us to compute large amounts of data and find answers to a myriad of questions faster than ever before.

Our faculty and students are leveraging AI and machine learning, in their research and education in nearly every field. From discovering new medical advances that improve human health to exploring the outer reaches of the universe, LSU researchers are using AI and machine learning to push the boundaries in every discipline.

The sky is not the limit. Join us on the journey.


Our AI research:

  • Discovers new, safe and effective medicine in mere minutes

  • Predicts wildfires to help planners and responders

  • Leverages the power of social media to track critical resource needs during hurricanes and extreme weather events 

  • Creates new media tools in our virtual production program

Through robotics and community outreach to elementary, middle and high schools in central Louisiana, LSU of Alexandria, or LSUA, is increasing access to careers in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, for a growing number of students, including at underserved schools. For many, robotics is their first experience with machine learning and AI.

LSU researchers have built a cancer drug discovery engine powered by AI that soon could match any type of cancer, based on a small cell sample from a patient, with the drug most likely to cure that cancer.

Seeing a world increasing its reliance on artificial intelligence, or AI, LSU Ph.D. candidate Zita Hüsing decided to take a closer look at AI through fiction. Using the fictional androids seen in the movie “Blade Runner,” Hüsing is examining how AI plays a part in American labor and capitalism, and its impact on disability, race and gender.

Fuel Cell Technology Draws Interest from General Motors, Brings Toyota to Campus

Higher power densities could transform future, green travel—including by air—and Louisiana is poised to lead in zero-carbon and low-carbon chemical fuel manufacturing.

What's Driving This Innovation?

“In seconds, our AI can process more information than any human could in a lifetime. It sees patterns we would never spot otherwise, and far exceeds human intuition in finding drug candidates.”

Frej Berglind, LSU Department of Mathematics graduate student
