View of Schönbuch Forest in Tübingen We are based in Tübingen, near the Schönbuch forest (all the photographs on the site are of the environs of Tübingen).

The goal of the FMLS group is to develop new and better foundations for machine learning systems. The “systems” is essential here – machine learning is a technology which only has its effect when integrated into larger systems, which themselves are not just technologies, but include people (“socio-technical systems”).


The FMLS group sits within Department of Computer Science. It started in April 2021 when Bob joined the University of Tübingen.


The group contributes to the teaching activities of the department of computer science, see Teaching.
