The initiative Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP), in which KTH is included, is getting substantial capital injection. Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) will contribute a total of SEK 1 billion. The AI investment can be divided into two parts. The major part, led by Danica Kragic Jensfelt, Professor of Computer Science, will focus on machine learning, deep learning and next generation AI (eXplainable AI).

The second part is about increasing the understanding of the mathematics behind AI. This part will be lead by Johan Håstad, Professor of Theoretical Computer Science.
