Pioneering AI,
transforming futures

Our Vision

A future where AI works for everyone through cutting-edge research, education and collaboration with industry and society.


75+ labs

1000+ affiliates

75+ professors


Our Mission

Leading the way towards trustworthy, accessible, and inclusive AI is built on the foundation of three key pillars.


01

Research. Ensure EPFL and Switzerland remain at the forefront, not only of AI, but also of Applied AI to other sciences.


02

Education. Provide an EPFL-wide coordination of AI teaching, and scalable just-in-time education for everyone.


03

Innovation. Connect with the Swiss private and public sectors to cultivate cutting-edge, neutral AI know-how and foster trustworthy AI.
