The expert in artificial intelligence (AI) and data management has now been awarded a LOEWE top professorship at TU Darmstadt. The LOEWE professorship will be funded over five years with around two million euros from LOEWE funds.

State program supports application for “Reasonable Artificial Intelligence” cluster of excellence

By awarding the LOEWE professorship, the state of Hessen is supporting the “Reasonable Artificial Intelligence (RAI)” research project as part of the Excellence Strategy of the German federal and state governments. The planned Cluster of Excellence under the leadership of TU Darmstadt in collaboration with the universities of Frankfurt, Bonn and Würzburg aims to develop the next generation of AI: AI systems that learn with a “reasonable” amount of resources based on “reasonable” data quality and “reasonable” data protection.
