The UKZN/CSIR Meraka Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research (CAIR) was launched in November 2011. It is an initiative jointly funded by the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). CAIR was founded by Prof. Tommie Meyer (Director) and Dr. Deshen Moodley. CAIR members are based primarily at the CSIR Meraka Institute at the CSIR in Pretoria, and the School of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science on the Westville Campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban.

CAIR conducts foundational, directed and applied research into various aspects of Artificial Intelligence. The current focus is on Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Ontology Engineering, and Adaptive Systems, with applications in Health Informatics. CAIR has four research groups: the Adaptive Systems group, the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning group, the Health Architecture Lab group and the Ontology engineering and Ontology-driven Conceptual Modelling group.

We invite you to visit the CAIR website regularly to find out more about CAIR members and their activities.
