As one of the most representative technologies of the current technological revolution, artificial intelligence is becoming a new driving force for global economic development. In this context, the Institute of Artificial Intelligence of the School of Economics and Information Engineering of Southwestern University of Finance and Economics was established in 2017 on the basis of the former Institute of Software Engineering. The Institute has a strong faculty and 21 teachers, including 6 professors, 8 associate professors, 13 doctors with doctoral degrees, 5 doctoral supervisors, and 14 master tutors. The Institute adheres to the philosophy of “Science and Technology, Capital and Economics”, and is responsible for economic information technology and management doctoral programs, computer software and theory master training, artificial intelligence research and related social services.
In recent years, the Institute's teachers have achieved fruitful results, publishing more than 50 SCI papers and more than 10 provincial and ministerial level projects.
In terms of talent training, we aim to cultivate high-level professionals with pioneering and complex artificial intelligence that are comprehensively developed in moral, intellectual and physical development. Cultivate students' scientific attitude of seeking truth and being pragmatic, scientific style of pioneering and innovation, and enthusiasm for hard work; train students to master the basic theories and professional knowledge of artificial intelligence, understand the frontier dynamics of discipline development, and have strong independent scientific research and The ability to develop technology; to provide high-level talents with rich research capabilities and practical experience in the field of artificial intelligence for research institutions, Internet companies or large enterprises.
