The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory – known as CSAIL ­– is the largest research laboratory at MIT and one of the world’s most important centers of information technology research.

CSAIL and its members have played a key role in the computer revolution.



Opened in Boston in 1861 by the geologist William Barton Rogers who was its first rector, MIT, at first dedicated to applied industrial research, has grown into 5 schools and 32 departments administering undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
