CFA Working Group on Artificial Intelligence

The College of Fine Arts shares with all schools and colleges at Carnegie Mellon University in advancing efforts related to artificial intelligence research, practice and development so that our world will benefit from these improvements. CFA faculty, students and staff are dedicated to AI research and creative practice within our five schools and three associated programs.

The arts, architecture and design influence AI in different and striking ways, and our ongoing research will continue to change our region, our nation and our planet. Through our work, we seek to discover the next level of visual perception, face and speech recognition, and cybersecurity — among other developing technologies — working with colleagues inside CFA and across disciplines at CMU.

CFA Up-skilling Fund for AI

In response to AI rapidly changing the landscape of teaching, creative practice and research, Dean Mary Ellen Poole has created the College of Fine Arts Up-skilling Fund for AI. A collaboration with the Working Group on AI, this fund answers the need for time and support for faculty and staff to fully engage with these emerging technologies.


University Resources

In addition to coordinating the creation of the CFA Up-skilling Fund for AI, the AI Working Group has identified university resources that may help faculty and staff as they continue to explore the growing capabilities of AI.
