A pioneer in the field of Generative AI, Computer Scientist Björn Ommer recently joined the ELLIS network as a Fellow. Together with his team he developed ‘Stable Diffusion’, a ground-breaking open source text-to-image generator which has fundamentally expanded the possibilities of creative image generation.
ELISE offers a possibility for researchers not affiliated with the ELISE project to apply for the ELISE Fellows Mobility funding.
ELISE/ELLIS is represented in the prestigious UN High-Level Advisory Body on Artificial Intelligence: ELLIS Fellows Petri Myllymäki, ELISE Innovation Manager and Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Helsinki, and Andreas Krause, Director of the ELLIS Unit Zurich, Chair of the ETH AI Center and Professor at ETH Zurich, were appointed to the newly formed body to advance recommendations for the international governance of AI.
ELLIS was founded to promote scientific excellence in modern AI research and to secure Europe’s leadership in this crucial field. Outstanding individuals who advance science are essential to achieve this goal. Following a call for Fellows at the beginning of the year, ELLIS has welcomed 33 new exceptional researchers to its ranks. They enrich the network with their expertise and advice, and will play a major role in shaping the future of machine learning in Europe.
