Center for Hybrid Intelligence

Center for
Hybrid Intelligence

The term hybrid intelligence refers to approaches and technology that enable cooperation between humans and intelligent machines. Temple University’s Center for Hybrid Intelligence (CHI) is committed to promoting research, education, and software development activities towards building computer systems that could learn from experience, adapt, exhibit intelligent behavior, cooperate with humans, and improve human condition.

We aim to become a center of excellence in artificial intelligence and cognitive computing and a catalyst for interdisciplinary research at Temple. We are providing cutting edge educational and research experiences for Temple students and training programs for continued education. We are promoting entrepreneurship and are fostering collaboration with industry, government, and nonprofit organizations in Greater Philadelphia and beyond.
