Center for No-Boundary Thinking

The Center for No-Boundary Thinking aims to support a vibrant intellectual environment and promote deep connection between AI and other disciplines.



The Center for No-Boundary Thinking is based on the concept of no-boundary thinking (NBT), which will develop human infrastructure at the frontier of bioinformatics, advanced data science and artificial intelligence, as part of its broader mission to address research challenges without the boundary of disciplines.

Recognizing the difficulty in addressing some of the hardest problems in interdisciplinary science, the NBT concept promotes the importance of spending more effort up-front in defining the real problems to be solved before rushing into research efforts. 

While incorporating the domain knowledge, data analytics and computation, and artificial intelligence, NBT defines a broad approach to address these scientific challenges over an appropriate time scale and a well-considered process.
