The Applied Computational Intelligence Laboratory (ACIL) is a collaborative artificial intelligence research laboratory conducting research on a myriad of modern neural network architectures across all learning modalities and across all engineering applications. The ACIL is the largest research program in adaptive critic designs (ACDs), a neural-network-based generalization of dynamic programming for optimization and control, with expertise in adaptive resonance theory, unsupervised learning, clustering, and reinforcement learning. The laboratory frequently collaborates with other departments of Missouri S&T, different universities, and businesses requiring artificial intelligence applications across different industries.
The ACIL is located in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department of the Missouri University of Science and Technology.
The goals of the ACIL are:
1. Advance state-of-the-art research in the field artificial intelligence
2. Push the modern capability of applied AI for the well-being and betterment of all mankind
3. Connect scholars between disciplines, departments, and universities pursuant of these goals
