Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems

Bernhard Schölkopf is the director of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. With his foundational research, Bernhard was able to become one of the most important voices in machine learning and specifically the area of causality. His work includes “common sense”-based artificial intelligence, which smartly separates coincidental correlation from actual causation. His research has won him several prestigious awards and he is currently co-heading an AI research lab funded by Amazon. Bernhard’s research is essential in shaping the intelligent systems we will increasingly interact with on a daily basis.
