CLAIRE | Saarbrücken

“CERN is an excellent model of what we plan to achieve with CLAIRE. The core research is done by many excellent researchers and labs distributed across Europe and the world. But by coordinating their research, they get much more leverage and wider recognition in all areas.”

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Philipp Slusallek, Vice-Chair of the Board and Director of Strategy

ABOUT US

Established in April 2019 as the very first CLAIRE office, we are located at DFKI Saarbrücken, in the heart of the border triangle between France, Luxembourg and Germany. This location offers the perfect opportunity for cooperation in the Greater Region and beyond, this is why we are the contact point for this region, Germany and even Austria. Among many other activities, our main focus is on connecting academia and industry. Accordingly, we are also mainly involved in the newly founded Innovation Network (For-profit members of CLAIRE) and the European Networks of AI Excellence Centers.

The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) was one of the founding institutions when CLAIRE was established in 2018, and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Philipp Slusallek, who is Executive Director at DFKI Saarbrücken and Scientific Director of the DFKI research department Agents and Simulated Reality, is one of the three co-initiators of CLAIRE. Since the establishment of CLAIRE AISBL in January 2020, he also serves as its Vice-Chair of the Board and Director of Strategy. The German CLAIRE Office is supporting Professor Philipp Slusallek in this role and contributes also to the setup and implementation of internal structures and processes within CLAIRE. Furthermore, we are successfully liaising with national and regional governments, especially with our neighbour countries in Luxembourg and France. The Saarbrücken team was also significantly involved in the organisation and implementation of AI-related Theme Development Workshops on Public Sector, Mobility & Transportation and Health.

KI 2021 – The German Chapter of CLAIRE
28.09.2021 09:00-15:00 CET

Trusted AI – Unattainable Vision or Social Mission? Opportunity or burden? How can it be implemented?

Such questions were the focus of the first meeting of the German chapter of CLAIRE, the Confederation of Laboratories for AI Research in Europe. Trusted AI puts a special emphasis on providing (verifiable) guarantees for the correct functioning of modern AI-based systems and, in this sense, significantly tightens the rather unspecific term Trustworthy AI.

The meeting brought CLAIRE members together with representatives from industry, politics and academia and offered all interested parties the opportunity to get in touch with CLAIRE, learn about CLAIRE’s mission and discuss the topic of Trusted AI.

The one-day event took place online on 28 September as part of KI 2021, the 44th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence.
