LIT Artificial Intelligence Lab

Our three pillars are Machine Learning, Logical Reasoning, and Computational Perception

Managed by Prof. Sepp Hochreiter, the LIT AI Lab was created as a permanent research center at the Linz Institute of Technology (LIT). The unique environment at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz is an opportunity for the LIT AI Lab to pool the JKU’s world-class expertise in artificial intelligence (AI) to shape and advance AI research and its industrial applications.

The LIT Lab is committed to scientific excellence. We focus on theoretical and experimental research in machine learning, logical reasoning, and computational perception. We are educating the next generation of AI researchers and engineers in AI technology at various academic levels.


 “Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the part of computer science concerned with designing intelligent computer systems, that is, systems that exhibit characteristics we associate with intelligence in human behaviour – understanding language, learning,  reasoning, solving problems, and so on.”
(Barr & Feigenbaum, 1981)

New Publication: The Duality of Reputation Portability: Investigating the Demand Effect of Imported Ratings Across Online Labor Markets

Together with Diana Tran Nhat and Timm Teubner (Technical University Berlin), Laura Thäter recently published an article titled "The Duality of Reputation Portability: Investigating the Demand Effect of Imported Ratings Across Online Labor Markets" in the journal Electronic Markets. 

The paper investigates the impact of reputation portability on demand across online labor markets, particularly as to how introducing reputation portability affects the demand for workers and influences imported ratings on the demand. The findings suggest that while imported ratings stimulate demand, their effect is lower compared to on-site ratings, raising concerns about potential unintended consequences, particularly favoring workers who have high rating volumes.

The article is part of a special issue about social welfare computing and is openly available (open access).
