The ELLIS unit Nijmegen promotes fundamental research in machine learning and their application in life sciences, by focusing primarily on statistical approaches. The machine learning research at the ELLIS unit Nijmegen focuses on elucidating the basic mechanism of information processing in biological systems as well as improving healthcare. This research is supported by several institutes and programs as (1) the neural computation theme of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, which focuses on elucidating the computational mechanism underlying neural information processing, (2) the ICAI AI for Health lab, which aims to implement AI techniques for improving healthcare, (3) the bits and brains program which focuses on neuromorphic computing, (4) coordination of a recently established European network on brain-inspired computing (iNavigate, H2020-MSCA-RISE-2019 Program), (5) coordinating the AI component of a recently awarded 14.3M euro CrossOver grant on Neurotechnology and (6) the recent establishment of a 65M euro IMEC OnePlanet Research Centre at Radboud University. which focuses on health and sustainability.
