What is the Competence Center Machine Learning Rhein-Ruhr (ML2R)?
The Competence Center Machine Learning Rhine-Ruhr aims at bringing Machine Learning (ML) technologies in Germany to a worldwide leading level. The ML2R Center is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as one of four nationwide ML nodes. The Technical University of Dortmund, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS in Sankt Augustin and for Material Flow and Logistics IML in Dortmund and the University of Bonn are involved.
- Human-oriented Machine Learning focuses on humans and designs Machine Learning processes in such a way that decisions made with the help of Artificial Intelligence become understandable, traceable and validatable for human beings.
- Machine Learning with Restricted Resources makes it possible to reliably perform calculations using Machine Learning even on small devices such as smartphones or directly in sensors. This also includes learning on quantum computers, which circumvents the limitations of existing hardware.
- Machine Learning with Complex Knowledge integrates logical knowledge from various sources into learning systems to ensure reliable results even with small or insecure data sets.
