Artificial intelligence – networked worldwide

Scientific excellence thrives on the exchange with the best in the world: In the “International Leibniz Future Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence”, scientists from all over the world will conduct research at the L3S in Hanover from summer 2020.

The Leibniz Future Lab, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, will focus on state of the art research in artificial intelligence and also develop intelligent solutions for personalised medicine. Individual therapies, medication tailored to the individual patient and more precise diagnoses – this is what personalised medicine is supposed to achieve. This requires the processing and analysis of huge amounts of data.

The research of the future laboratory located at L3S focuses on new approaches and algorithms for intelligent, reliable and responsible systems. The interdisciplinary research team integrates a variety of approaches relevant for AI. Intelligence is enabled by knowledge graphs, deep learning, sensor fusion and scene interpretation, probabilistic methods and information extraction from the web. Reproducibility and robustness of the methods are as important as Privacy by Design. And finally, results of intelligent systems should be explainable, fair and attributable.

The Leibniz Future Laboratory wants to establish itself in Germany as one of the central contacts for artificial intelligence and its application in the field of personalised medicine. Together with national and international partners, the Future Laboratory will therefore conduct a large number of cooperative research and innovation projects with scientists from Leibniz University and Hannover Medical School.

International Future Laboratories

International cooperation makes top-level research possible: The “Future Laboratories”, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), bring together researchers from all over the world to work on the future of artificial intelligence (AI). The International Future Laboratories create an outstanding innovation space for top executives from science and industry – from Germany and the world – who want to put “AI Made in Germany” into practice and establish it as an internationally recognized brand.
