The Emergent AI Center, funded by the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung, is an interdisciplinary research center which investigates the topic of "Algorithmic Intelligence as an Emergent Phenomenon".
Researchers from the institutes of Physics, Biology, Computer Science and the Max-Planck-Institute of Polymer Research at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz study which statistical basic patterns are hidden in natural processes and how modern machine learning methods could acquire these patterns.
This research forms the basis for developing even better machine learning methods, and maybe even provides the opportunity to obtain a deeper understanding of the mysterious phenomenon called intelligence.
The Call for Proposals has already started (Link to CFP). Registrations are possible until August 31, 2019.
