Our three pillars: Machine Learning, Logical Reasoning, Computational Perception
Headed 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)
More than 20 theses of Master students of the AI program at Johannes Kepler University were presented at the JKU campus.
This online workshop will present projects on how to tackle Covid-19 using methods of machine learning and AI.
