The VUB Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, or short AI Lab, was founded in 1983 by Prof. Luc Steels and is part of the Computer Science Department. Over the years, more than hundred researchers have worked at the laboratory. They have built a large number of artificial systems to investigate different aspects of intelligence. The key topics of the AI Lab are reinforcement learning, multi-agent systems, language processing, knowledge representation and reasoning, data mining, computational creativity and computational biology.

The AI Lab is a member of the Brubotics consortium, Interuniversity Institute of Bioinformatics in Brussels (collaboration with ULB), and collaborates with the VUB Data Analytics and Digital Mathematics Labs around responsible AI, with applications in cyber-physical systems, human-computer interaction and business analytics.
