Our focus areas

HIIT’s funding and services are aimed for all Helsinki IT researchers. However, our activities concentrate on five strategic focus areas of research: artificial intelligence, computational health, cybersecurity, data science, and foundations of computing. We have chosen these focus areas because we believe that their potential for societal impact is particularly high.

Below, we have listed a brief description of each focus area, their named leaders at HIIT, as well as applicable joint research units which are affiliated with HIIT:
