Welcome to HeiCAD!

Artificial Intelligence and Data Science are fundamentally changing both research and teaching at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. The Heine Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (HeiCAD) will actively accompany and shape this process. It is an inter-​faculty scientific institution that promotes, coordinates and represents all activities of the university in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in public.

Interdisciplinary research and teaching in AI and Data Science

HeiCAD was founded as a central scientific institution of the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf with the support of the structural fund of the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-​Westphalia. It is closely linked to the research group "Decision-​making with the help of Artificial Intelligence", which is funded by the Jürgen Manchot Foundation and in which scientists from all faculties are involved. In both units, concepts for interdisciplinary research and teaching in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science are tested, which are then made usable by HeiCAD for all areas of the HHU.
