About the LIT AI Lab.

Our Goals, Mission, and Team: Learn More About Us.

Created in 2017 as a permanent research institution, the LIT AI Lab started with three seed groups conducting core AI research:

  • Deep Learning (Sepp Hochreiter)
  • Logical Reasoning (Armin Biere)
  • Computational Perception (Gerhard Widmer)

and three further research groups:

  • Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences (Günter Klambauer)
  • Human-centered AI (Markus Schedl)
  • Computational Data Analytics (Johannes Fürnkranz)

The expertise of these six groups is now complemented by

  • Pervasive Computing (Alois Ferscha)
  • Software Engineering (Alexander Egyed)
  • Symbolic Computing (Manuel Kauers)

at our Graduate School of Artifical Intelligence. The doctoral program benefits from the synergies of these nine groups, focusing on interdisciplinary research to advance AI. In order to broaden the application areas of our AI research in the LIT AI Lab, we collaborate closely with other JKU institutes that conduct related research as well as with international companies.
