Computer Science & AI
The Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) is a centre of excellence for multidisciplinary research and education in computer science and artificial intelligence (AI).
The mission of LIACS is to advance computer science for a sustainable future of society. Computer Science, including Artificial Intelligence, will play a paramount role in creating a sustainable future for society and environment. At LIACS, we strive for advancing algorithms, systems and foundations of Artificial Intelligence for supporting this goal. Excellent science, a professional attitude and an inclusive, respectful, compassionate treatment of our people and all stakeholders characterize our approach. Within ten years, we have grown to be a leading center for fundamental and applied research in this domain.
LIACS performs research within a number of themes. We concentrate on the study of theoretical foundations and formal methods, and focus on applications in the field of artificial intelligence and data science. And we cooperate with knowledge institutes, governments and corporate organisations. As a consequence of our broad and international working field, we offer complete and outstanding education.
