Welcome PhD students!

This is an exciting time for our research group! This months (April 2023) our group grew considerably; in total three new PhD students joined. Julian Dierkes and Wadie Skaf had their first day of work on 1 April while Henning Duwe started today. Wadie will focus on AutoAI for time series. Julian is excited about AutoAI methods for reinforcement learning. Henning will explore two different topics in the beginning: first, automating coding with large language models and second Neural Network Verification. We are sure that the three will be an enrichment for the ADA Group!

Preliminary Aim Website Launched

Our new Chair for AI Methodology (AIM; Informatik 14) is under heavy construction! We are a small group at the moment: the academic part consists of Prof. Dr. Holger Hoos as the chair holder and Dr. Jakob Bossek as assistant professor (Akademischer Rat). Andrea Gibbels supports us in administration and Dipl. Inform. Willi Geffers keeps all technical systems running. At the moment of writing we are still very busy with all kinds of administrative tasks, e.g., ordering furniture for our rooms at Theaterstraße 35-39, organising teaching, getting familiar with the workflows at the RWTH.
