Jena in the ELLIS Network
The researchers of the ELLIS Unit Jena are well connected to the ELLIS Network via the ELLIS program “Machine Learning for Earth and Climate Science”, the EU project ELISE and individual collaborations with fellows and scholars.
Our goal is to combine fundamental development in maachine learning with applied challenges concerning spatio-temporal dynamics in the Earth system for a better understanding of the Earth system and its components.
Organizing Courses, Summer Schools, Inter-Disciplinary Symposia, Public Release of Software, Data Artifacts, as well as, participation in Expert Groups, Regulatory Bodies, and Public Outreach.
Societal and Economic Impact
Beyond a purely scientific work, our research will enable the regulatory bodies and policy makers in their decisions and measurements as well as the broader public to get a better grasp.
Our team consists of 11 researchers from seven universities and institutes.
Prof. Dr. Markus Reichstein from Max Plack Institute for Biogeochemistry and Prof. Dr. Joachim Denzler from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena are the directors of the unit. Dr Conrad H. Philipp is in charge of the overall coordination.
The Friedrich Schiller University (FSU) Jena,
the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry
(MPI-BGC), the Institute of Data Science of the German Aerospace Center (DLR IDW), the Michael Stifel Center Jena (MSC Jena) and the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung (CZS) brings together diverse theoretical and applied aspects of artificial intelligence.
