CMAI: A success story

The Center for Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence (CMAI) focuses on research related to scientific computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, algorithm and software development, control, optimization, and nonlinear partial (or ordinary) differential equations.

Faculty Spotlight: Harbir Antil

Harbir Antil is the Director of the Center for Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence (CMAI) and a professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at George Mason University. He is the co-Editor-in-Chief of the Springer journal “Advances in Continuous and Discrete Models.” He is on the editorial board of prestigious journals such as “SIAM Reviews” and “Math Control & Related Fields.” Antil has also held a research fellowship position at Brown University and is currently an Affiliate Professor at the University of Delaware. His areas of interest include algorithmic optimization, machine (deep) learning, numerical analysis, partial differential equations, and scientific computing with applications in optimal control, shape optimization, dimensional reduction, imaging, fluid dynamics, etc. His research is funded by the National Science Foundation, Airforce Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), NIST, Department of Navy, and Department of Energy.

CMAI has a remarkable research output. Besides a large number of research grants (12 ongoings), just in the last 1.5 years, CMAI has published or submitted over 50 research articles in the leading journals. This level of output is comparable to some of the top centers in the country.
