ELLIS is a pan-European initiative that aims at building a stronger Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence research community in Europe, by creating a diverse network of ELLIS units all throughout Europe. These units host the strongest researchers in these fields, who will collaborate in an effort to shape how machine learning and artificial intelligence will change the world.

We are proud to present that Amsterdam will be the home of an ELLIS unit, as made possible by a substantial financial contribution of the University of Amsterdam. The unit counts 20 faculty members of different institutes at the UvA and is directed by Max Welling, founding board member of the ELLIS society. Along with 29 other new ELLIS units, the Amsterdam unit will be officially launched on September 15. In the prestigious launch event, each new ELLIS unit will present its research focus in a short video. The event is open to the general public via live streaming. A detailed agenda and the YouTube link will be posted shortly on the event's website.
