ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is creating new opportunities at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

RIT computer science professor Richard Zanibbi’s studies involve using artificial intelligence in chemistry experiments, including one that aims to find more efficient ways to create solar cells.

He’s joining a team to create the National Science Foundation Artificial Intelligence Institute for Molecular Discovery, Synthetic Strategy and Manufacturing. It’s one of five new AI institutes established by the NSF.

The NSF grant will help fund Ph.D. student researchers in Zanibbi’s Document and Pattern Recognition Lab at RIT.
