Mittelbauprogramm 2019

Performance-oriented funding of academic mid-level faculty for research groups at universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg


Announcement of the 3rd funding tranche dated March 11, 2019


The Institute for Learning and Innovation in Networks (ILIN) works forcibly on the development of socio-technical competence in the field of conceptualization and evaluation of applied artificial intelligence (AI) methods in science, innovation and production processes. The goal is to design human-centered AI systems with transparent and comprehensible decision support and to test them with relevant stakeholders from science and industry.

Concretely, an AI demonstrator for the use case of a citation recommendation­service for supporting scientific work in science­institutions and research-based companies will be designed and built. Three main objectives are pursued with the development of the AI demonstrator:

  • Commissioning and testing of the self-configured ML-suitable hardware,
  • .
  • Competency building in the fields of transparent AI and AI-assisted decision support,
  • .
  • Providing a demonstrator to investigate research questions related to the above fields,
  • .

A working prototype could find direct application in research operations at the institute as well as with interested partners from academia and industry.
