Main Focus

The research pursued by the ELLIS Unit Jena is at its core motivated by the desire to explore how environmental and climate sciences can profit from machine learning and AI advances to gain a better understanding of Earth dynamic systems. Highlights of this research agenda include fundamental and pioneering work on the evaluation of climate change impacts in the society and the economy. Beyond a purely scientific work, this research will enable the regulatory bodies and policy makers in their decisions and measurements as well as the broader public to get a better grasp. The ELLIS Unit Jena is involving the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry and the German Aerospace Center and is funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation and the Michael Stifel Center Jena.

The European Laboratory for Learning & Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) is a pan-European AI network of excellence. It builds upon machine learning as the driver for modern AI and aims to secure lasting international leadership of AI made in Europe by connecting top researchers in this field and by creating a multi-centric AI research laboratory. Founded in 2018, ELLIS has grown into a network that counts 41 ELLIS units at world-class institutions in 16 countries, 16 ELLIS programs and a pan-European PhD program. The members of ELLIS are committed to shaping the future of AI in Europe by pushing the scientific and technological boundaries for human-centered, beneficial and safe AI.
