Air Force Research Laboratory,Â Air Force Office of Scientific Research andÂ Carnegie Mellon University have partnered to launch a center of excellence that focuses on materials sciences.
CMU will host the center under aÂ multi-million-dollar agreement with the U.S. Air Force in support of academic research and development, Wright-Patterson AF Base said Monday.
Students working for doctorates will useÂ artificial intelligence applications to create new materials and further build on existing ones. The center will support such projects.
âStudent researchers will spend their summers onsite at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and AFRL scientists will, in turn, spend time at CMU throughout the academic year,” saidÂ Sean Donegan, project manager at AFRL.
The CoE will also consist of experts inÂ machine learning andÂ computer science, fields that would serve as mediums for the research.
AFRL and a separate panel of advisers will conduct yearly reviews on the CoE’s work to track progress.
