AIRLab (Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab) was established by prof. Marco Somalvico in 1971 as one of the first groups of researchers in Italy working on Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Computer Vision.
AIRLab is one of the robotics labs of Politecnico di Milano.
Researchers working at AIRLab have always followed and leaded the evolution of AI and Robotics. We have always worked both on theoretical aspects and on applications, developed in projects funded by national and international agencies and companies. AIRLab professors presently manage one of the largest curricula in Italy on AI and Robotics, producing each year more than 50 master theses and about 10-15% of the PhD theses of the Computer Science and Engineering Section at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria of the Politecnico di Milano.
Many activities at AIRLab are covered by media as soon as they attract interest.
