The European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) promotes leading European research sites in the field of machine learning with the aim of retaining researchers in Europe and training young European researchers. The initiative focuses on advancing modern AI that positively impacts the economy and society.

Together with a team of seven scientists from the University of Stuttgart and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems Stuttgart, SFB-TRR 161 project leader Andreas Bulling (A07) successfully applied to join the prestigious ELLIS network as one of its 34 units. “Being accepted into the ELLIS network is a great success for our location in these important AI future areas, which will significantly increase our visibility within Cyber Valley, nationally and internationally,” said Andreas Bulling, who is also professor of Human-Computer Interaction and Cognitive Systems at the Institute of Visualization and Interactive Systems at the University of Stuttgart. “The chances of success for future research proposals as well as for attracting young researchers at all levels of the scientific career ladder increase.”

The Stuttgart ELLIS unit will focus its research on four main areas:

  • interactive intelligent systems,
  • natural and programming language processing,
  • learning theory, and
  • robot learning.

Aside from Andreas Bulling and Ingo Steinwart (Institute for Stochastics and Applications ISA, University of Stuttgart) as founding directors, the unit currently includes five scientists as members. Additional professorships are to be involved.
