05/17/2024 - Researchers are using corrupted data to help generative AI models avoid the misuse of images under copyright. Powerful new artificial intelligence models sometimes, quite famously, get things wrong — whether hallucinating false information or memorizing others’ work and offering it up as their own. To address the latter, researchers led by a team at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a framework to train AI models on images corrupted beyond recognition.  Read more

05/06/2024 - Music has always had the power to stir our emotions, from the exhilaration of a fast-paced rock anthem to the melancholy of a soulful ballad. But, could the music we listen to also affect how we make decisions, especially in our interactions with robots? This intriguing question lies at the heart of a study conducted by UT Austin Assistant Professor Elad Liebman and Professor Peter Stone.  Read more
03/20/2024 - From large language models to brain-machine interfaces, students work with faculty on cutting-edge research. Even before The University of Texas at Austin declared 2024 the Year of AI, artificial intelligence and machine learning had researchers across campus abuzz with activity. Undergraduates under the mentorship of professors in computer science and departments across campus are making their contributions in this fast-growing field. Read more
01/25/2024 - The University of Texas at Austin is creating one of the most powerful artificial intelligence hubs in the academic world to lead in research and offer world-class AI infrastructure to a wide range of partners. Read more
08/11/2023 - The Department of Computer Science and the Good Systems program present a one semester-credit-hour course titled “Essentials of AI for Life and Society.” Experts in artificial intelligence predict that AI-powered technologies will continue to become more and more a part of our everyday lives. It will affect how we work, spend our leisure time, make policy decisions and make sense of the world around us. And yet, most of us don’t really understand how the technologies work or what their potential risks and benefits are. Read more
05/01/2023 - The work relies in part on a transformer model, similar to the ones that power ChatGPT A new artificial intelligence system called a semantic decoder can translate a person’s brain activity — while listening to a story or silently imagining telling a story — into a continuous stream of text. The system developed by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin might help people who are mentally conscious yet unable to physically speak, such as those debilitated by strokes, to communicate intelligibly again.

She received a Sloan Research Fellowship and an NSF CAREER award.  Could you describe your main research interests?  Read more
02/23/2022 - An artificial intelligence system made history recently by beating a human world champion in Sony's popular video racing game, Gran Turismo Sport. The technological feat, which made the cover of the journal Nature, involved an AI system designed in part by three University of Texas at Austin computer science Ph.D. alumni and professor Peter Stone.
