COMET MODULE: KNOW-CENTER RECEIVES IMPORTANT GRANT FOR RESEARCH ON AI

Published on

Additional millions for science. The Austrian Research Promotion Agency has approved the COMET module Data Driven Artificial Intelligence (DDAI) for the Know-Center. This will enable the Know-Center to further expand its research in the field of AI.

The most recent decision of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) is currently causing a lot of rejoice in Styria. Six modules were approved for the first award of the so-called COMET-modules, five of them from Styria. According to the FFG, the programme is characterised by “a high level of research competence and scientific integration combined with a high degree of implementation in the corporate sector. Four million euros are available for each of the four-year research projects.”

“This will enable us to take another new direction in terms of content,” explained Stefanie Lindstaedt, CEO of the Know-Center. Up to ten additional people will be employed by the module. In terms of content, the DDAI (Data Driven Artificial Intelligence) revolves around harnessing the potential of Artificial Intelligence – for example in interaction with encrypted, sensitive data sets. The goal is to make AI “trustworthy and reliable” says Lindstaedt. Research is therefore being carried out on a “theoretical basis for secure AI algorithms that can be explained and verified”. As one of the leading research centers for Big Data, Data-driven Business and AI, the Know-Center generates real entrepreneurial added value in cooperation with many companies.
