Artificial intelligence technologies, which have been around for 50 years, have become very popular in recent years with the development of computer software and hardware so these technologies are now available to everyone. Artificial Intelligence Applications and Research Center was established within our university by gathering studies about artificial intelligence and associated researchers under umbrella single body.

Mission and Vision

Our Mission; to conduct scientific studies and to carry out research and development activities on artificial intelligence, autonomous systems as well as artificial intelligence and autonomous system applications. It is also necessary to provide the education, consultancy, working environment and equipment necessary for the university students to participate in the related competitions and to ensure the representation of the university in such platforms.

Our vision is to support the development of artificial intelligence systems which will be used in the solution of current problems, primarily in our country and then over the rest of the world.
The scope of the center includes the following:

  • To follow the academic developments in artificial intelligence and autonomous systems, to carry out academic activities, to plan and conduct high-quality scientific and technological studies, to create the necessary opportunities and to carry out applications.
  • To produce projects through regional and national collaborations, and then to work on the solution of regional, national and global problems in order of priority.
  • To contribute to the scientific research and studies of the university.
  • To conduct research and applications on the issues needed by the industry, other institutions, and organizations.
  • To organize and carry out theoretical and practical training programs.
  • To improve broadcasting and information activities.
  • To cooperate with advanced research centers in the world.
  • To organize seminars and workshops.
  • To improve and develop the research infrastructure on artificial intelligence.
  • To raise the awareness of students who areat pre-university level on artificial intelligence.
  • To make the necessary arrangements for undergraduate students to practice artificial intelligence and participate in competitions.
