Bamberg Center for Artificial Intelligence
The Bamberg Center of Artificial Intelligence (BaCAI) is the research hub for AI research at the university of Bamberg, integrating nine professorships exclusively dedicated to a broad range of research fields within AI, additional nine professorships of computer science and information systems with strong relations to AI as well as AI applications in industry, healthcare, and education. The profile is strengthened by strong interdisciplinary collaborations with humanities and social sciences through association with the Center for Innovative Applications of Computer Science (ZIAI).
Artificial intelligence and machine learning have been a central aspect of teaching and research at the faculty since 2004. The focus is on the development of comprehensible, interactive, transparent and robust intelligent technologies that aim to support humans through AI and not to replace humans with AI. With method-orientated foundational research, AI research at the WIAI enjoys an international reputation.
BaCAI’s mission is to advance AI research for a positive impact on people’s lives. The center aims to be a beacon of multidisciplinary AI expertise, world-class research, and educational excellence to shape the transformative potential of open AI systems, foster sustainability and economic growth, and nurture regional, national, and international talent.
