Welcome to relAI! – Konrad Zuse School of
Excellence in Reliable AI

The current technological revolution is largely driven by spectacular progress in artificial intelligence (AI). Yet, although the huge potential is widely recognized, the lack of reliability of AI technology is still considered a serious issue of concern, limiting its adoption both by industry and society at large. Indeed, aspects such as safety, security, and privacy-preservation are essential prerequisites for the use of AI in domains of public interest – e.g. ensuring that robots do not endanger life or respecting confidentiality of data.

The vision of the 'Konrad Zuse School of Excellence in Reliable AI' (relAI) is to train future generations of AI experts, who for the first time combine technical brilliance with awareness of the importance of AI’s reliability. Our novel, highly innovative AI program will educate top international candidates in the end-to-end development of reliable AI systems (including scientific knowledge, business expertise, and industrial exposure), both for industry and academia, and perform cutting-edge research to make AI ready for deployment in critical application domains.

relAI trains future generations of AI experts who combine technical brilliance with an eye on AI's implications for society.
