Toyota chooses SEAS for multi-institutional $75M AI-focused automotive research alliance

Penn’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences was chosen as one of 16 university participants in a $75 million five-year artificial intelligence research program sponsored by the Toyota Research Institute (TRI). The program is one of the biggest collaborative research programs spearheaded by a major automotive company worldwide, and the joint research effort covers three key AI-related areas: automated robotics, machine-assisted cognition and automated driving. Michael Posa, Ph.D., an assistant professor of mechanical engineering and applied mechanics and Jianbo Shi, Ph.D., a professor in Penn’s computer and information science department, both of whom are affiliated with Penn’s GRASP Laboratory, will receive research funding through the TRI alliance.
