Prof. Dr. Eirini Ntoutsi

has been Professor for Open Source Intelligence at the Department of Computer Sciences since August 2022.

Prof. Eirini Ntoutsi holds a diploma (2001) and a master degree (2003) in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the Polytechnic School of the University of Patras/Greece. She received her Ph.D. in Data Mining from the University of Piraeus/Greece in 2008. Subsequently, she became post-doctoral researcher at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in the group of Prof. H.-P. Kriegel which she joined in 2010 as a post-doctoral fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. From 2016 to 2021, Eirini Ntoutsi was an associate professor of Intelligent Systems at Leibniz University Hannover and still is a member of the L3S Research Center today. Prior to her appointment at the University of the Bundeswehr Munich, Prof. Ntoutsi was a full professor for Artificial Intelligence at Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) from 2021 to 2022.

Eirini Ntoutsi’s research interests lie in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). She has been focusing on designing intelligent algorithms that learn from data continuously following the cumulative nature of human learning, while ensuring that what has been learned helps driving positive societal impact. Her current research areas include continuous learning over non-stationary data and data streams, responsible AI and in particular fairness-aware machine learning and explainable AI, and generative AI, that is using machines to generate new plausible data and artifacts.

Prof. Ntoutsi is an active member of the research community serving regularly as a program committee member for several conferences and workshops. She was for instance co-chair or co-organizer multiple times for essential conferences and workshops such as CIKM, ICDM, ECMLPKDD or AAAI on topics like bias and fairness in AI, evaluation and experimental design in data mining and machine learning, or business applications of social network analysis. In 2018 she was co-organizer of the Dagstuhl perspectives workshop 18262 “10 years of Web Science: Closing the Loop" and is currently guest editor for the special issue on bias and fairness in AI in the Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery journal. Prof. Ntoutsi is a member of ACM, IEEE and German Informatics Society (GI). Her research is supported by several national (DFG, Volkswagen Foundation, BMWi, BMBF) and EU funds (ITN, H2020).


On the occasion of her start at UniBw M, the Research Institute CODE spoke with Prof. Ntoutsi about her field of expertise and her upcoming research activities. You can find the interview here >
