About us

The CSAIL-Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) research collaboration is a medium for knowledge joint-creation, transfer, and exchange of expertise between MIT-CSAIL and QCRI scientists. Scientists from both organizations are undertaking a variety of core computer science research projects -- database management, Arabic language technology, new paradigms for social computing, and data visualization, etc., with the goal of developing innovative solutions that can have a broad and meaningful impact. The agreement also offers CSAIL researchers and students exposure to the unique challenges in the Gulf region. Scientists at QCRI are benefiting from the expertise of MIT’s eminent faculty and researchers through joint research projects that will enable QCRI to realize its vision to become a premier center of computing research regionally and internationally.
