Work environment

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is one of Europe's top technological universities, situated at the heart of a most innovative high- tech region. Thanks to a wealth of collaborations with industry and academic institutes, TU/e's research has real-world impact. TU/e has around 3,000 employees and 2,300 PhD students (half of which international, representing about 70 nationalities). Our university is at the heart of society: TU/e focuses in education and research on complex, societal challenges such as Energy, Health and Smart Mobility.

The Eindhoven Artificial Intelligent Systems Institute ( EAISI ) was established in the summer of 2019 as a cross-departmental institute. It has a staff consisting of a program acquisition team, a team focusing on (inter)national positioning, and a scientific team. It builds on the strengths of AI research in the Data Science Center Eindhoven), the High-tech Systems Center, the strategic area Smart Mobility and ongoing collaborations among TU/e researchers.

EAISI aims to develop AI-technology for real-time autonomous decision-making, which has a direct impact on the real world focusing on the application areas of health, mobility and high tech industry. Using our traditional strengths in systems engineering and our close ties with industry, TU/e wants to jumpstart the shift towards a next generation machine-data driven intelligence, which is intimately connected to the open world through: 1) data and algorithms, 2) humans and ethics, and 3) engineering systems. In other words: EAISI aims to make machines intelligent and to improve the development of meaningful technical solutions to societal challenges, via high-tech systems and robotics. This way TU/e aims to significantly speed up the AI transition
