Marcus Rohrbach

In most artificial intelligence (AI) applications, models learn from data that derives from a single information source. Additional data sources or so-called modalities can make AI models better and more reliable. An expert in multimodal learning, Marcus Rohrbach is set to become a Humboldt Professor for Artificial Intelligence in Darmstadt.
