“The electronics giant this week announced the creation of Sony AI, a division that will be headquartered in Japan.
The new organization will pursue advanced AI technology at research sites in Tokyo, Austin and Europe. The Austin operations will include an AI lab, which is scheduled to open this year, the company said.
Peter Stone, a professor of computer science at UT with expertise in the AI field, will head up the U.S. arm of the new organization, Sony said. Stone will also continue teaching at UT, and will continue his roles with Texas Robotics and the university’s Learning Agents Research Group in the Artificial Intelligence Lab.”
