LIT Artificial Intelligence Lab

Our three pillars: Machine Learning, Logical Reasoning, Computational Perception

The LIT AI Lab headed by Prof. Sepp Hochreiter was founded as a permanent research center of the Linz Institute of Technology (LIT). In the unique environment offered by the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz, the LIT AI Lab bundles JKU’s world-class expertise in artificial intelligence (AI) for shaping and advancing AI research and its industrial applications.

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


 “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 Research Published: Digital Transformation and Institutional Theory

Together with Danielle Logue (Associate professor at the University of Technology Sydney in innovation, entrepreneurship, and management) and C.R. Hinings (Professor Emeritus at the University of Alberta, Senior Research Mentor at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary, Fellow of Cambridge Digital innovation and Honorary Research Fellow at the Judge School of Business, University of Cambridge), and Michael Barrett (Professor of Information Systems and Innovation Studies at the Judge Business School in Cambridge), Prof. Thomas Gegenhuber edited a Volume for Research in the Sociology of Organizations.  The editors asked what kind of rethinking of institutional processes is needed in relation to digital transformation. Based on this, they established a forum to enrich and advance institutional theoretical approaches to understanding digital transformation.

The introduction is temporarily freely available.
