KompAKI Project Kickoff Meeting

December 15, 2020 - The "Competence Center for Work and Artificial Intelligence in the Rhine-Main Area" (Kompetenzzentrum für Arbeit und künstliche Intelligenz im Rhein-Main-Gebiet – KompAKI), met in a virtual setting on December 1, 2020 for its official project kick-off meeting. The Competence Center is researching new potential for human-centered AI applications and their business models.

metaphacts is involved in central issues within the joint project, focusing on "cooperative artificial intelligence". The main characteristics of the cooperative AI is that it should be possible for users without knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) to train learning systems ("Automated AI") but also that learning systems can explain themselves ("Explainable AI") and adapt through interaction with the user ("Interactive AI"). Specifically, metaphacts' goal is to develop methods for cooperative AI using knowledge graphs to provide explanation components and to create new interfaces for non-expert users to interact with knowledge-based intelligent systems.

The knowledge gained at the Competence Center will be validated in pilot projects with partner companies mainly from the production sector. All project results will be made available to the regional working world and university education through various information and transfer formats during the project period.


The joint project "Competence Center for Work and Artificial Intelligence in the Rhine-Main Area" is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with 10.75 million euros over five years. The competence center includes a total of 11 research partners at universities, eight companies, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and other associated partners.
