CALS Artificial Intelligence


The University of Florida and technology company NVIDIA have announced a public-private partnership that will bring artificial intelligence to the forefront of the university’s technology programs. This partnership is central to UF’s future vision that includes an expansive plan to elevate its impact and reach in research, education, and economic development. This initiative will also create an AI-centric data center that houses the world’s fastest AI supercomputer in higher education.

This page outlines various ways in which the UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences is using AI to create a world of possibilities.
