Mission Statement and Goals

BIFOLD conducts foundational research in big data management and machine learning, as well as its intersection, to educate future talent, and create high-impact knowledge exchange.

The Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD), has evolved in 2019 from the merger of two national Artificial Intelligence Competence Centers: the Berlin Big Data Center (BBDC) and the Berlin Center for Machine Learning (BZML). Embedded in the vibrant Berlin metropolitan area, BIFOLD provides an outstanding scientific environment and numerous collaboration opportunities for national and international researchers. BIFOLD offers a broad range of research topics as well as a platform for interdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange with the sciences and humanities, industry, startups and society.

Data management (DM) and machine learning (ML) are the scientific and technical pillars powering the current wave of innovation in artificial intelligence (AI); it is the efficient processing and intelligent analysis of very large, complex, heterogeneous data that has the potential to revolutionize and substantially improve our lives and societies. BIFOLD conducts scalable yet agile foundational AI research. Furthermore, it addresses the emerging challenges and requirements created by the rapidly growing importance of data management and machine learning in practically all areas, from medicine, industry, natural sciences, humanities, e-commerce, and media, to government and society.
