Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a cornerstone of the digital revolution. While we’ve heard of AI for many years, today we sit at a unique crossroads where the volume of data, accessibility of computational power and evolution of algorithms such as deep learning have come together to empower the digital revolution in ways that have never been seen before.

To explore AI and where it can take us, the University of Louisville (UofL) College of Business has founded the AI Innovation Consortium (AIIC) with participation from several industry leaders such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), General Electric Appliances (GEA), Amgen, V-Soft Consulting and other Fortune 1000 companies.

The AIIC is a US-based think tank of IT and advanced technology thought leaders focusing on how AI can propel organizations and our community forward. Specifically, the AIIC will build standards and best practices that help drive AI adoption, evolve privacy, data governance and bias, guiding principles and effectively align AI evolution.


The standards group of the AIIC supports the creation of best practices, delivery frameworks, and the evolution of external regulatory standards to accommodate AI.



The data group focuses on the three important aspects of data with respect to AI: data privacy, data governance, and data bias.

Research & Development

The research and development group focuses on building next generation AI technologies through a variety of initiatives.

Business Value

The business value group focuses on evolving strategy, knowledge dissemination, and proof-of-concept solutions of AI for the industry.
