The ELLIS Unit Potsdam (ELLIS Sustainable Life Potsdam) includes the Hasso Plattner lnstitute (HPl), the University of Potsdam (UP) and the Center for Al in Public Health Research (ZKl-PH). It aims to advance the development and application of Al algorithms in the areas of sustainability and health. Moving away from fossil fuels to renewables, minimizing energy consumption, personalized medicine, and algorithm-driven analysis of viruses to prevent and mitigate endemics and pandemics are some of today's key challenges. The unit's research agenda therefore covers activities in the fields of AI and Energy, AI for Medicine, Genomics and Infectious Disease, as well as Efficient and Scalable Methods for AI Algorithms.
