Many contemporary ML algorithms are still comparably badly understood conceptually. As a result, they require manual tuning, can be inflexible and behave erratically.
The program connects experts with diverse backgrounds to advance the algorithmic foundations of ML. It will support the development of efficient and reliable learning systems with theoretical guarantees.
The ELLIS mission is to create a diverse European network that promotes research excellence and advances breakthroughs in AI, as well as a pan-European PhD program to educate the next generation of AI researchers. ELLIS also aims to boost economic growth in Europe by leveraging AI technologies.
