ELLIS – the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems – is a pan-European AI network of excellence which focuses on fundamental science, technical innovation and societal impact. Founded in 2018, ELLIS builds upon machine learning as the driver for modern AI and aims to secure Europe’s sovereignty in this competitive field by creating a multi-centric AI research laboratory.
ELLIS Fellows are leading scientists in the European ML/AI community who advance science, and also act as ambassadors of ELLIS, thus giving a voice to data-driven AI research in Europe. Pedro and Concha are the Directors of the ELLIS Unit Madrid that was created in 2022.
