Zürich (ETH)

The ELLIS unit Zürich will be established primarily around a core group of ETH faculty members working on methodological aspects of machine learning and emphasize the use of ML in health, life sciences, environmental sciences, and human-machine interaction. The unit will be developed in close coordination and integration with a new initiative supported by the ETH leadership towards establishing an AI Center/Institute within ETH. It will primarily focus on the following research areas: (1) ​Theoretical and methodological foundation for reliable and trustworthy ML (e.g. inductive bias of deep networks, fairness/ transparency/ robustness, causality, reinforcement learning), (2) ​Machine learning for Personalized Health, (3) ​Interactional intelligence and computational pragmatics and (4) ​Machine Learning for Remote Sensing and Environmental Modeling.
