Kick-off event of the Munich Center for Machine Learning


Munich, Bavaria (ots) – Initially funded as a project, the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML) has now successfully established itself as a joint institution of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich and Technische Universität München (TUM). As a permanent institution, it will henceforth be jointly funded by the federal government and the Free State of Bavaria. Thus, the local research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning gains further charisma far beyond the science location Munich.

On this occasion, we cordially invite you to the Kick-off Munich Center for Machine Learning:

on July 27, 2022

2:00 p.m.

at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities

Alfons-Goppel-Str. 11

80539 Munich

Please register by July 26, 2022 at [email protected].

Agenda of the event:

* Welcome Markus Blume, Bavarian State Minister for Science and the Arts

* Welcome Dr. Christoph March, Federal Ministry of Education and Research

* Welcome Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Bernd Huber, President of the LMU

The aim of the MCML is to advance basic research in the field of Artificial Intelligence with a strong connection to practical applications. The MCML was founded in 2018 as one of six AI competence centers nationwide and has since been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

It now consists of more than 50 successful research groups in both basic research and application-oriented machine learning. Following successful evaluation, the BMBF and the participating German states are now providing a total of up to 100 million euros annually for the five centers. For the MCML, 19.6 million euros per year are earmarked.
