  • independent research and expansion of scientific knowledge at the highest international level in the field of uncertainty assessment, interpretability and traceability of neural networks
  • review and further development of existing methods for robustness analysis and uncertainty modeling of machine learning models. New and further development of approaches for (visual analysis) of model components or for self-explanatory models
  • research and development of procedures for the verification and stabilization of machine learning models, e.g. through prior knowledge or through the combination of multiple data sources
  • perform experiments to validate the developed methods. Evaluation and interpretation of the experimental results to compare different methods
  • implementation of the procedures in prototypical algorithms
  • detailed preparation and presentation of the new approaches to scientific users
  • presentation and discussion of the research results at conferences, meetings, etc. at national and international levels
  • publication of the research results in suitable publications
