ELISE - European Network of AI Excellence Centres

Setting up a Powerhouse of European AI

ELISE is a network of artificial intelligence research hubs. Based on the highest level research, it spreads its knowledge and methods in academia, industry and society. The network invites all ways of reasoning, considering all types of data applicable for almost all sectors of science and industry. We do this while being aware of data safety and security, and striving to explainable and trustworthy outcomes. ELISE works in cooperation with ELLIS (European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems). ELISE is part of the EU Horizon 2020 ICT-48 portfolio, and is coordinated by Aalto University.

Dr. Nuria Oliver and her team take the grand prize in global pandemic response challenge competition

Los Angeles, March 10, 2021. A team of scientists headed by Dr. Nuria Oliver, co-chair of the board of the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS), has won first prize in the 500k Pandemic Response Challenge. Originally published March, 2021.

ELLIS Program ‘Robot Learning: Closing the Reality Gap!’ - An interview with one of the Directors

Autonomous robots that can assist humans in situations of daily life have been a long-standing vision of robotics, artificial intelligence, and cognitive sciences. In recent years, learning techniques have triggered tremendous progress in various areas including self-driving cars, logistics, manufacturing, and home automation. Several transport systems are largely autonomous, such as commercial aircrafts, metros, some trains, and drones. The driver, when there is one on-board, is providing only sporadic guidance.

Something remarkable is taking shape in the European Machine Learning community

In 2018, a group of leading European researchers in the field of machine learning joined forces to establish ELLIS - an AI network of excellence which aims to secure Europe’s sovereignty in the field of modern AI by creating a multi-centric laboratory consisting of units and institutes across Europe offering outstanding research conditions for the best talent from around the world. This grassroots initiative quickly gained international attention and inspired other scientists to follow the ELLIS vision.
