AI University Initiative
Modern society has entered a Fourth Industrial Revolution in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) has catalyzed stunning levels of technological development across virtually all industries. UF’s newest multidisciplinary initiative, the UF AI University Initiative — guided and supported by principal partners like NVIDIA and its co-founder Chris Malachowsky (B.S. UF ECE ’80) — will leverage the exceptional breadth and depth of resources contained within the university’s 16 colleges and serve as a national model for AI research, technological advancement and next-generation workforce training, ranging from K-12 through working professionals.AI University WebsiteAI University

UF will spearhead DARPA mission to pioneer crucial biomanufacturing in space
With the goal of creating a resilient supply chain for a sustained presence in space, researchers at the University of Florida (UF) are bioengineering microbes for experimentation on the International Space Station (ISS) they hope will reliably produce biopolymers, nutraceuticals, and antibiotics in variable gravity conditions.
Animal Ecosystem Engineers Much Stronger Driver of Salt Marsh Accretion than Expected, Study Shows
Researchers at the University of Florida (UF) and the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research have shown that ecosystem engineering by mussels in Southeastern US salt marshes is a stronger driver of coastal ecosystems' ability to keep pace with sea-level rise than expected.
Timing is everything for UF team creating hyper-accurate synchronization for DoD readiness
Funded by a $4.5 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), UF researchers, including Roozbeh Tabrizian, Ph.D., principal investigator and associate professor and Alan Hastings Faculty Fellow in ECE, are leading the project to produce a microchip-sized tactical-grade clock that maintains accuracy on the magnitude of billionths of a second over time.
New ‘Invisible Finger’ Technology Poses Potential Phone-Hacking Threats, Researchers Say
When a team of researchers from the University of Florida unveiled new technology that allows someone to hack into a nearby touchscreen-enabled device using what they call an “invisible finger,” those in the field of cybersecurity took notice.
UF/IFAS Scientists Rethink Food Possibilities With 3D Food Printer
Adam Watson and Ziynet Boz, two UF/IFAS professors in the agricultural and biological engineering department, have been rethinking the power of 3D printers, specifically their ability to print food.
