The Amsterdam ELLIS Unit has officially been launched

European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) launched a unit in Amsterdam at Amsterdam Science Park on 15th September 2020.

The network, consisting of 30 units, is intended to create a strong community in the field of Machine Learning and AI in Europe. It aims to make Europe (more) attractive and competitive for talented researchers in the field of AI.

‘Within ELLIS Amsterdam, we conduct research in various areas of AI: information retrieval, multimedia, computer vision, natural language processing and Machine Learning’, says Machine Learning professor Max Welling, one of the founders and board member of ELLIS. ‘A very important part of ELLIS Amsterdam is the Geometric Deep Learning Research Program. We want to use geometric mathematics to gain insight into the fundamentals of machine learning in order to broaden its scope and arrive at new applications. With that, our program puts Europe at the epicenter of geometric deep learning.’

Twenty scientists from three different UvA institutes work within ELLIS Amsterdam: the Informatics Institute, the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics and the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation. They work closely with colleagues from the 29 other European units through temporary exchanges of researchers. They also collaborate with parties outside the scientific world, with organisations such as; Qualcomm, Ahold Delhaize, TomTom, Bosch and Elsevier.

The program of the virtual launch included a compilation video in which the 30 European units presented themselves and spoke about their research.
