Excellence Initiative

SCHUFA Holding AG

In 2018, the University of Tübingen won further partners for Industry on Campus projects. Currently SCHUFA Holding AG and the University of Tübingen are cooperating in the fields of data science and analytics. Dr. Gjergji Kasneci, computer scientist, CTO and Head of Innovation and Strategic Analysis at SCHUFA, will be seconded to the Wilhelm-Schickard-Institut for Informatics for a period of five years. Whether we are shopping online, clicking on search results or advertising, or communicating with modern devices, intelligent algorithms increasingly influence our everyday lives. But how can it be guaranteed that the algorithms lead to meaningful results which correspond to the actual existing data? How can it be ensured that machine learning processes remain transparent and understandable to the user? Questions such as these are the topics of this new research cooperation.
