Who we are

The Artificial Intelligence Lab Brussels performs leading fundamental and applied research in both symbolic as subsymbolic AI. Multi-agent and cognitive approaches are a common thread throughout the years.  We strongly believe in education that pays attention to creativity, teamwork, empathy and critical thinking.

We were the first AI lab in Continental Europe, founded in 1983 by Luc Steels and have delivered more than 50 doctors, 900 publications.
