C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute


The C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute is a research consortium dedicated to accelerating the benefits of artificial intelligence for business, government, and society. The Institute engages the world’s leading scientists to conduct research and train practitioners in the Science of Digital Transformation, which operates at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, internet of things, big data analytics, organizational behavior, public policy, and ethics.

C3.ai DTI was established in March 2020 by C3 AI, Microsoft Corporation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of California, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, Princeton University, and University of Chicago. The Institute is jointly managed and hosted by University of California, Berkeley and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

MIT F&A Instructions for C3.ai.DTI solicitations

C3.ai DTI awards are sponsored research and are subject to the institute F&A rate. The sponsor doesn’t allow F&A on awards, therefore the awards incur under-recovery. The School of Engineering and Vice President of Research office will support the under-recovery associated with research assistants on faculty awards. Please budget research assistants with full tuition, do not subsidize the tuition. Any non-student related under-recovery charged to the C3.ai projects will be expensed to the PI or DLC. All PRS/SRS awards will require under-recovery support from the DLC and/or PI.
