CMU, R.K. Mellon Foundation Announce Historic Partnership
Foundation approves record $150M grant to support science at CMU
A leader of transformative advances in neural sciences
As the birthplace of artificial intelligence and cognitive psychology, CMU brain scientists have had real-world impact for over 50 years.
From the creation of some of the first cognitive tutors, to the development of the Jeopardy-winning Watson, to founding a ground-breaking doctoral program in neural computation, to recent cutting-edge work on the genetic basis of autism, Carnegie Mellon has been, and will continue to be, a leader in the study of brain and behavior.
And our expertise doesn't stop at technology. World-renowned faculty such as Allen Newell, Herbert Simon, John Anderson and Raj Reddy all helped shape modern cognitive psychology.
At the same time, seminal collaborations between psychologists and computer scientists gave rise to the field of artificial intelligence.
Today, partnerships between CMU neuroscientists, psychologists, statisticians, computer scientists and engineers leave us poised to make similar groundbreaking accomplishments.

Last week we were at the #DolphinHabitat (Las Vegas) to test a new device that measures blood and tissue #oxygen content in #dolphins🐬. The device built by @Artinis_MS is similar to the #pulseoximeter used by👨⚕️ and will allow to further study #diving capabilities in #wildanimals pic.twitter.com/dspD0krfom— GlobalDivingResearch (@GDivingResearch) May 26, 2021
As we remember George Floyd today, I invite you to join @Headingw, myself and the CMU community at 4 pm ET for brief remarks followed by 9 minutes and 29 seconds of collective reflective silence and remembrance on the one-year mark of his murder. https://t.co/OCizc98gmG pic.twitter.com/UIrEwPf9b1— CMU Provost Office (@CMUProvost) May 25, 2021
