Centre of Competence for Information Technology (KITE)

The interdisciplinary Centre of Competence for Information Technology (KITE) is involved in applied research into and development of artificial intelligence, machine learning and IT security. It combines expertise from the Departments of Health Sciences (GES), Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Data Processing (MND) and Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Informatics (MNI). The informational approaches and modelling procedures range from medicine (e-health) and biology (bio-informatics), through industry (smart factories), to digital humanities.
