Since 2011 AIAI has been part of the Artificial Intelligence and its Applications Institute (previously named CISA) within Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. AIAI continues to make available the resources and educational materials from its previous work. Applied AI work continues to be performed by staff, students and collaborators across the School of Informatics.

AIAI was a technology transfer organisation that promoted the application of research on Artificial Intelligence for the benefit of commercial, industrial, and government clients. AIAI had considerable experience of working with SMEs, and with research groups in larger corporations.

The key research areas of AIAI were:

Planning and Activity Management: world-leading center for planning and activity management;

Knowledge Systems and Knowledge Modelling: the formal side of intelligent systems, concerned with models, ontologies and the methods for acquiring knowledge. AIAI was at the forefront of activity in knowledge representation and is active in the Semantic Web;

Adaptive Systems: genetic algorithms, ant colony optimisation, evolving intelligent agents and robotic controllers, artificial life and applications to scheduling, and timetabling were active research areas;

Bioinformatics: an important application area for ontology and adaptive systems techniques.
