The University of Florida is making strategic investments in AI at all levels, including education programs and research infrastructure, both physical (HiperGator AI) and intellectual (new faculty hires). In response to the UF AI initiative, the UF Informatics Institute (UFII) invites interdisciplinary, faculty-initiated research projects that show potential for extramural support.
Projects should be innovative, support the mission and goals of the Informatics Institute, and have strong potential for garnering future funding from external sources. Seed Funds are not intended to support on-going projects or to supplement current research, only new projects and/or new collaborative partnerships. Projects should be ‘shovel-ready’, meaning seed funds will be used to produce proof-of concept data that can be used to obtain extramural funding.
Internal submission deadline is Thursday, January 28th, 2021.
