Tucked away on the fourth floor of the University of Wyoming Engineering Building, students are working toward the future — artificial intelligence. Jeff Clune came to UW in 2013 with a plan to create a new lab specific to advancing computer intelligence. The assistant professor of computer science quickly created the Evolving Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, which has produced various world-renowned research and ideas. “One of things we’ve done a lot of work on in my lab, where we’re one of the labs on the forefront, is trying to understand how networks operate internally,” he said. “Once a network has learned to do something, like classify deer and giraffes, you can try and understand how it’s doing that.
