"Google AI is a strong supporter of open research and of the idea of close collaboration between industry and academia on basic research. The ELLIS initiative can provide the ground for the development of a very strong scientific ecosystem in Europe, supporting the amazing research talent in Europe, and allowing it to bring its unique perspective to the field."
Jeff Dean, Google Senior Fellow and Head of Google AI
“Artificial intelligence will fundamentally change the world. In the automotive industry, it is used for autonomous driving functions, but is also just as relevant for optimising company processes. Porsche expressly supports the Ellis Initiative. We must act in order to meet our ethical responsibilities in the development and application of AI. We need research and training in this field at an excellent level – also in Europe.”
Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG.
"At Facebook we believe AI brings transformative potential. To ensure it benefits everyone, we do research in the open and collaborate with academia around the world. Europe has vibrant AI talent, and we're enthusiastic about the potential for ELLIS to further boost AI research in Europe, and ensure a diverse ecosystem of experts around the globe."

AI plays a crucial role in technology today and in future and will change the world. At Bosch we focus on the development of robust, safe and explainable AI powering our products “invented for life”. Achieving excellent, world leading research in AI combined with close academia - industry collaboration will ensure the European competitiveness in this space, therefore Bosch supports the ELLIS initiative.
Michael Bolle, CDO & CTO Robert Bosch GmbH
“Europe is home to some of the leading international research groups in artificial intelligence. These technologies have the potential to improve our lives. The development is still in its infancy, and ELLIS wants to ensure that the highest level of research in this field will continue to be performed in the open societies of Europe.”
Bernhard Schölkopf, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems
