About Artificial Intelligence Division
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a major driving force in modern scientific and social development. Benefitting from advances in deep learning and big data, AI is leading a revolution in information technology and fostering emerging transitions in a broad range of commercial and intellectual realms. AI is already becoming a technological cornerstone of our future world.
The AI Division of the School of Engineering at Westlake University is committed to conducting innovative, trailblazing research in the following areas:
(1) Theoretical research in data science, deep learning, and human-like learning;
(2) Applied research in computer vision, natural language processing, speech processing, and robotics;
(3) AI applied to life sciences and other cross-disciplinary explorations made possible by deep learning and other AI technologies.
We are engaged in achieving influential innovations in theories and practical applications of these research fields. In addition to scientific research leadership we also emphasize undergraduate and graduate education, with the goal of cultivating the next generation of global leaders through inspiring research problems that will motivate their professional development.
The AI Division currently has multiple openings at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor ranks. We enthusiastically invite scientists with excellent research accomplishments and teaching proficiency working in one or more AI disciplines to join us. Together, we aspire to build a world-leading institution with significant global impacts in science, technology, and education at Westlake University.
The Westlake Center for Micro/Nano Fabrication is equipped with advanced micro/nano fabrication facilities and is managed by a group of experienced engineers. The Center houses Suss mask aligner, Raith e-beam lithography (EBL) system, Samco ICP etching system, deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) system, ULVAC thin film deposition system, etc. Such equipment endows a fabrication capability for silicon and organic micro/nano devices that can fulfill the requirements of Physics, Chemistry, Electronics, Photonics, Biomedicine, Materials Science and other research disciplines. Besides the traditional fabrication tools mentioned above, the Center owns focused helium ion nanofabrication, femtolaser writing and laser direct writing tools, and offers great flexibility for creating novel complex 3D nanostructure for both scientific researches and industry prototyping projects.
With the future expansion at Yungu Campus, the Center will fully expand its electronics research capability by merging with ion implanter, stepper scanner, materials growth and device fabrication tools for III-V and II-VI semiconductors and enhancement of its structure characterization to achieve sub-nanometer resolution and 3D nano complex.
With its hardware and intellectual resources, the Westlake Center for Micro/Nano Fabrication will assist the university to become one of the first-tier universities in the world; moreover, it aims to be actively involved in the research, development and educational programs of the university.
