The Davis Institute for Artificial Intelligence at Colby is the first cross-disciplinary institute for artificial intelligence (AI) at a liberal arts college. The Institute facilitates interdisciplinary, human-centered scholarship using rich datasets with real-world consequences and prepares students for a future where AI is transforming industries, careers, and modes of discovery, creativity, and scholarship. AI shapes all our lives; we should all be informed, critical AI tool users and tool builders.
The Davis Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Halloran Lab for Entrepreneurship host SureStart, a summer program that teaches real-world skills to students interested in AI.
Colby students get a rare opportunity to participate in conference-style presentations of their summer research; learning what goes into preparation of abstracts, talk and poster presentations. Our SureStart students rose to the challenge and demonstrated the skills they learned through the summer.
Colby College, through a generous gift that created the Davis Institute for Artificial Intelligence, is hiring an interdisciplinary cluster of two faculty members and one postdoctoral associate in the 2023-24 academic year. This follows successful hires in 2022-23 for scholars of Environmental AI, Philosophy of AI and an AI postdoc. Faculty at Colby have numerous opportunities to collaborate on research and teaching related to AI; currently there are faculty pursuing AI-related scholarship in geology, anthropology, music, physics, economics, east Asian studies and computer science.
