CSAIL is the largest research laboratory at MIT and one of the world's most important centers
of information technology research. CSAIL has its roots in two MIT computing powerhouses:
The Laboratory for Computer Science (LCS) and the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (AI Lab). LCS was founded in 1963 as Project MAC (Multiple Access Computing or Machine-Aided Cognition). The AI Lab was founded as the AI Project in 1959. As collaboration across the two labs increased, the LSC and AI labs merged in 2003, to form the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). CSAIL celebrated the 50th anniversary of Project MAC and the 10th anniversary of the merge in spring 2014.
