Researching Artificial Intelligence at LMU
Exploring the frontiers of knowledge
Advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) open up new perspectives for science. As a central hub for highly innovative research in Europe, LMU Munich plays a key role in probing both the potential of AI and confronting the challenges it presents. LMU fosters excellent basic research across its entire academic spectrum. From the humanities and social sciences to natural sciences and medicine, LMU’s world-class scientists employ a comprehensive approach to explore the applications and implications of AI across the University’s 18 faculties and with their partners on site and around the globe. For example:
- LMU’s computer scientists have been developing application-oriented machine-learning algorithms for use complex contexts in e.g. medical diagnostics, autonomous driving and climate modelling.
- LMU’s medical scientists translate medical knowledge and large amounts of patient data into clinical medicine, e.g. by developing AI-supported medical imaging.
- LMU’s computer linguists investigate automated language processing technologies at the interface between neuro- and sociolinguistics to enhance the natural interaction between humans and machines.
In total, over 50 internationally renowned LMU researchers are already working on or with AI methodologies and their application to fields ranging from the cvilizations of the ancient world to the origins of the universe. In fact, this is just the beginning: Over the coming years, LMU will continue to expand its role as a key player in AI innovation and create numerous attractive positions for outstanding AI experts on all levels.
