Responsible AI
Responsible Research Challenge - Responsible AI: The winners have been chosen!

Two research-projects have been chosen as winners: “AI4NAPP”, which aims to develop a new model of production planning that considers a holistic sustainability approach and “ML4RW”, which aims to address the issues of reducing food waste and improving energy utilization efficiency through the design of more accurate time-series-prediction machine-learning algorithms.


The ARRTI-Team and -Network congratulates the winners and is excited to support the two projects as ARRTI-Fellows in the coming months.

Deutsche Telekom Award
Deutsche Telekom Award

On 18 July 2023, the Deutsche Telekom Female Excellence Award, endowed with a total of €7,500, was presented for the first time at the ARRTI Academy evening in the Triangle building. The patroness of the event was Claudia Nemat, member of the Deutsche Telekom Board of Management and Heinrich Hertz Guest Professor.

The theme of the international competition was "Ethics of digitization", picking up on the current trend towards critical discussion of topics related to research on AI and AI-supported systems. The focus was deliberately on the positive aspects of AI and in particular on how AI can help us to orientate ourselves more responsibly in an increasingly complex world. Of the many outstanding submissions, two stood out in particular, so the jury decided to award one prize in the STEM subjects and another in the humanities and social sciences.
