[Fred Luddy speaks: It was very prescient of both Myles Brand and then-young CIO Michael McRobbie to say "Technology, software is going to be a part of everything we do in the future." And that notion has been built into this structure, this school and it's a very, very special, very collaborative space with people here from all over the planet and I just think this is a wonderful environment for nurturing great new ideas that could change humanity for the better.]

[Fred Luddy speaks: When you get that convergence of young people with their passions, their energy, and their new ideas, converging with knowledge, wisdom, information - that's when things can really be transformed. And that's why you see so many things that come out of educational research because professors will spark an interest and students will do things that most people never thought were possible.]

An investment in the people of Luddy

Luddy’s gift will also enable the creation of endowed chairs, professorships, and faculty fellowships in the school. Funds are also allocated to both graduate and undergraduate support, including scholarships for high-achieving Indiana students.

This gift will allow the next generation of researchers and students to bring together their knowledge, wisdom, and ideas to create things that we never thought possible.

Fred Luddy, founder of ServiceNow

The epicenter of the next big breakthrough

Central to this transformative gift, the new Luddy Center for Artificial Intelligence will support IU faculty and students pioneering advancements in AI and machine learning. This state-of-the-art center will enhance interdisciplinary collaborations with diverse units across Indiana University.

The center’s initial focus? AI approaches to digital health—a collaboration of Luddy researchers and IU’s extensive health and life sciences schools, departments, and programs.

The generosity and dedication of Fred Luddy to the people of the school is inspiring, and his support will help us invest in tomorrow in ways that will truly allow the school to take the next step in so many areas.
