Cal State University San Bernardino receives grant money

CSUSB to spend grant money on AI

Cal State San Bernardino has received a $100,000 grant that it will use to promote artificial intelligence among undergraduate students.

The funding, from the National Science Foundation, is part of a “team grant” that was also awarded to San Jose State, Cal Poly Pomona, Long Beach State and the California State University Chancellor’s Office, according to a statement on Cal State San Bernardino’s website.

“We hope to promote AI education for non-computer science majors,” said Yunfei Hou, an associate professor in CSUSB’s school of computer science and engineering, in the statement.  “The students will learn how to propose AI-powered solutions to address social issues considering both benefits and risks,”

Artificial intelligence – enabling computers to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence – is expected to grow in several areas, including transportation, education and healthcare, according to the statement.
