NOW: MSOE to build $34M artificial intelligence building

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee School of Engineering will soon be teaching students the newest technology skills in artificial intelligence.

The school announced that it's building $34 million computational science hall. MSOE Alumnus Dwight Diercks and his wife are funding the project.

The school says they want to establish themselves as the leader in artificial intelligence.

"Students across our disciplines will learn to use these skills because we think they're going to be widespread. We have a history of educating great engineers and we want to continue that history," said President of MSOE John Walz.

MSOE may add new majors and minors in artificial intelligence once the building is open.

There's a groundbreaking for the new building next year and it's expected to open in 2020.
