  1. Research in Artificial Intelligence:

    SRI International (SRI), founded as Stanford Research Institute, is one of the world’s largest contract research institutes. SRI, based in Menlo Park, California, was established by the trustees of Stanford University in 1946 as a center of innovation to support economic development in the region. It was established as a nonprofit organization under U.S. and California laws.

    In 1970, SRI formally separated from Stanford University and, in 1977, became known as SRI International. The separation was a belated response to Vietnam war protesters at Stanford University who believed that SRI’s DARPA-funded work was essentially making the university part of the military-industrial complex. SRI’s mission is discovery and the application of science and technology for knowledge, commerce, prosperity, and peace.[3] It performs client-sponsored research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, and private foundations. It also licenses its technologies, forms strategic partnerships, and creates spin-off companies.[4]
