The Ai4Ai Lounge (Ai4Ai: Artificial Intelligence for Analytics and Insights) is a new initiative at Marquette University, sponsored by the Diederich College of Communication and Northwestern Mutual Data Science Institute (NMDSI). It is a 1100 sqft collaborative workspace physically located in the College of Communication but is accessible to people outside of COMM and Marquette. The Ai4Ai is equipped with cutting-edge software and hardware for data science, analytics, and visualization. The project is directed by Dr. Larry Zhiming Xu, assistant professor, interdisciplinary data science faculty at Marquette and affiliated faculty at NMDSI.  

Ai4Ai is partnering with Data You Can Use, a Milwaukee-based nonprofit organization that aims to connect people who need data, who have data, and who can benefit from data. This groundbreaking partnership will continue to explore ways to effectively put data analytics into a local context.
