About us

To promote fundamental and applied research in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), the results of which would lead to the development of innovative products with real practical application and commercial potential, KTU established the Artificial Intelligence Centre.

Today, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) is among the priorities of the European Union and Lithuanian policies. Lithuanian Artificial Intelligence Strategy indicates the creation of a national AI research centre and infrastructure as one of the major steps for implementation of the Strategy.

The KTU AI Centre is responsible for University policies development and activities coordination related to AI development, including the promotion and services of the project, non-formal education, and the representation of the University in national and international organisations and working parties.

The AI Centre aims to meet the needs of business and society, to develop and integrate AI solutions that allow to solving different problems in industry, medicine, and the public sector.

Cooperating with business partners, The AI Centre seeks to contribute to the development of the Lithuanian AI ecosystem. There is also a strong focus on stimulating young researchers’ – undergraduate and postgraduate students – interest in AI. The aim is to encourage their involvement in problem solving and research.

The key functions of the KTU Artificial Intelligence Centre:

  • Developing and controlling policies for the development of artificial intelligence at the University;
  • Dissemination of University achievements and results in the field of artificial intelligence;
  • Representation of KTU in national and international organizations, working groups;
  • Coordination of projects, services (including non-formal education), activities;
  • Providing information to stakeholders about the services provided by the University.

The governing bodies of the KTU Artificial Intelligence Centre are the Head and the Council.

The Head of the KTU Artificial Intelligence Centre is responsible for implementing the artificial intelligence development policy and effective planning of the activities of the AI centre, organization of work.

Research Infrastructure

 

University researchers implement research, experimental development, and innovation (R & D & I) projects and contracts commissioned by different institutions to contribute to the economic, social, and cultural growth of the country and to solve issues relevant to society with new scientific knowledge and inventions.

Healthcare sector

KTU researchers carry out most of their scientific activities in medicine. Researchers are applying artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to disease diagnosis, medical image processing, and segmentation, developing different prediction models, intelligent patient monitoring, decision-making, and assistance systems. KTU researchers apply machine learning algorithms to diagnose oncological diseases, while also multiple sclerosis, solving artificial insemination problem.

Researchers are also developing innovative wearable health monitoring devices. Devices can assess the level of pain experienced by patients, monitor and evaluate the condition of patients with chronic kidney disease, and identify triggers for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Researchers working at the KTU Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences have extensive experience in applying nanotechnologies and AI technologies in radiology.

Business sector

One of the most important strategic goals of the KTU Artificial Intelligence Centre is to strengthen cooperation and create greater synergy between higher education and business. The experience of KTU researchers can be useful for the country’s business and industry sector, moving their activities to a higher level of digitisation. AI researchers can develop intelligent solutions to automate or robotise different processes required for defect and anomaly detection, large-scale data processing, intelligent control systems, and more.

Public sector

The application of artificial intelligence in the public sector has great potential. There are many areas in which artificial intelligence solutions could contribute to more efficient decision-making, from traffic management, intelligent parking systems to IoT technologies in physical devices (such as waste container).

Unfortunately, when comparing the extent to which IoT solutions are applied in the economy or the private sector, the public sector in Lithuania integrates artificial intelligence technologies rather slowly and cautiously. KTU artificial intelligence researchers aim to respond to the needs of both business and the public sector and offer them personalised solutions. University researchers have experience developing intelligent traffic control and monitoring systems, pension fund regulation models, forecasting and data analysis models for the State Tax Inspectorate, and others.

Other sectors

Besides the medical, business, and public sectors, the researches of University carry out in-depth fundamental and applied research in the communications, agriculture, legal and other sectors. KTU researchers have a lot of experience developing automatic Lithuanian language analysis tools, automatic Lithuanian text editors, intelligent systems for automatic management, information processing and control in crop production, animal husbandry, and forestry.
