IU is a leading force in conquering the digital age by developing new artificial intelligence, advancing cybersecurity expertise and preparing our world for tomorrow’s challenges.
Paving the way
At the forefront of AI research
IU is leading the way in building new pathways for educating the next generation of AI experts, and our researchers are navigating complex issues such as built-in bias in algorithms, whether robots have rights, the spread of misinformation and more.
A new hub on campus
Interdisciplinary researchers at the Luddy Center for Artificial Intelligence are exploring new approaches to utilizing AI, which will help scientists identify and solve real-world problems faster than ever. The Luddy Center was founded in 2021 with a $60 million gift from technology pioneer Fred Luddy.
Using AI, an IU researcher is exploring how intelligent assistants, such as Siri and Alexa, can help older adults with daily health care information tasks at home.

Roadmap to health
A digital twin of the immune system, being created by an IU researcher, could offer personalized treatments for a variety of ailments, including cancer, autoimmune diseases and viral infections such as COVID-19.Read about the research
This is such an exciting time to be working in AI, and there's so much potential for IU to contribute to AI and for AI to contribute to IU.David Crandall, director, the Luddy Center for Artificial Intelligence
Protecting cyber and national security
IU is helping state and local government agencies, not-for-profit organizations and small businesses better manage cyberattacks, protect intellectual property, improve privacy and prepare future cybersecurity experts.
In today’s complex world, research partnerships are crucial to protecting America, both its many citizens and the nation itself. IU continues to build these partnerships with various divisions of the U.S. Department of Defense, such as Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, located in Southern Indiana.
Securing the country
IU, Purdue and Notre Dame have teamed up with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division to develop Trusted AI Intelligence research and workforce development to benefit the defense and security of the United States.Learn about the initiative
Safeguarding the state
To combat the growing cyber risks that surround us, leaders from IU, Purdue and Notre Dame convened for the first Indiana Statewide Cybersecurity Summit.
Preparing for tomorrow’s threats
Diverse undergraduate and graduate students at IUPUI are receiving the training they need to become the next generation of cybersecurity engineers who will help the U.S. respond to national security needs.Learn about the NSF award
As technology evolves, so does the need for more robust and thoughtful cybersecurity measures. I'm proud that IU researchers are leading the way toward the creation of more comprehensive and inclusive computing protections.Fred Cate, IU vice president for research
