STATEWIDE AND IRELAND — VISITING CORK, IRELAND, GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL on Monday, May 20, announced plans to advance Artificial Intelligence research and encourage international collaboration in education with University College Cork and the State University of New York (SUNY) Collaborative Online International Learning Center. The COIL Center currently partners with 197 institutions around the globe as well as 35 SUNY campuses and eight CUNY campuses; and its method creates equitable team-taught learning environments where faculty from two cultures work together to develop a shared project syllabus, emphasizing experiential and collaborative student learning. Now, nearly two decades after SUNY COIL’s inception, the successful program now marks its first partnership with the National University of Ireland system. Students and faculty will be encouraged to engage in collaborative, international teaching and learning opportunities and to expand research and education in emerging fields like AI. Monday’s announcements further advance New York State as a leader in AI by engaging the international community and encouraging collaboration across the field among the next generation of leaders.

Just weeks after securing $275 million in the FY 2025 Enacted Budget for Empire AI, Governor Hochul earlier this month announced that the new SUNY INSPIRE Center will scale AI research and scholarship to advance the public good.
