There are many ways to achieve Artificial Intelligence (AI). But ELLIS is fully committed to machine learning, and then immediately on a European level. Its mission? To have machine learning experts share as much knowledge and experience with each other as possible and thus ensure that Europe becomes a truly important global player in the field of AI.

ELLIS is the abbreviation for European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems. It is a network in which leading European machine learning experts work closely together to raise the level of AI on this continent to a higher level. “Or rather: to an even higher level. Because scientifically speaking, we are already doing very well in Europe,” emphasises Max Welling. He is Professor of Machine Learning at the University of Amsterdam and board member of ELLIS, the organisation of which he is also one of the founders.
