Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz GmbH, Projektbüro Berlin


The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) has operated as a non-profit, Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) since 1988. Today, it maintains sites in Kaiserslautern, Saarbrücken, Bremen, a project office in Berlin, a laboratory in Lower Saxony, and branches in Lübeck, St. Wendel, and Trier.

DFKI combines scientific excellence and commercially-oriented value creation with social awareness and is recognized as a major "Center of Excellence" by the international scientific community. In the field of artificial intelligence, DFKI has focused on the goal of human-centric AI for more than 30 years. Research is committed to essential, future-oriented areas of application and socially relevant topics. Currently, with a staff of about 1,250 employees from more than 65 countries, DFKI is developing the innovative software technologies of tomorrow. The financial budget was 64.6 million euros in 2020.

DFKI is part of ePA-Coach, one of the 10 funded projects of the research program "Human-Technology Interaction for Digital Sovereignty". The ePA-Coach project aims at developing a coaching-based, interactive learning platform that enables elderly and less technical people to proficiently use the ePA (elektronische Patientenakte=electronic patient file). The Educational Technology Lab of the DFKI supports reaching the project goals by providing AI-based methods for providing user-adaptive content and support in the development of the coaching-component (chatbot-system using avatars).
