At yesterday’s annual IME-party, Adjunct Associate Professor Anders Kofod-Petersen won the “Disseminator of the Year” – award. The price is annually awarded by the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics, and Electrical Engineering (IME) to a researcher who has done a remarkable job in representing and spreading information about his field.
As regular readers of this site know, Anders has done a lot to present applied AI projects to various media lately, in particular through his work on the Intelligent Traffic Light and the Intelligent Sliding Door. Congratulations, Anders!
Students from upper secondary school in Drammen are visiting us at NTNU. Our masters students gave them a demonstration of our intelligent traffic light and swarm robots. Below are some pictures showing their visit to our robot lab.

Welcome to the website for Applied Artificial Intelligence!
We will keep this site updated with information about current events in Artificial Intelligence in Trondheim, and information about who is doing what.
Hopefully, it can serve as a way to learn about research in A.I. across organizational boundaries and a place to identify opportunities for cooperation.
