Topic Field: Generative AI - Foundation and Large Language Models

    The topic field "Generative AI - Foundation and Large Language Models" at DFKI is headed by Christoph Maerz and focuses on the development and integration of language and foundation models in the digital transformation of industry and society. This area is dedicated to the creation of a central hub to serve as a node for innovative developments and collaborations.
    The latest methods and software for processing text, language and knowledge are developed and tested for the realization of industrial projects and transfer labs. The department also aims to integrate LLMs into existing projects in order to increase their performance and efficiency, such as in the project coMem.
    Another focus is the development of a general multi-agent system (MAS) based on large language models. Such systems are designed to handle complex tasks in dynamic environments and improve the interaction between AI systems.

    Topics we cover:

    •         Generative multi-agent systems
    •         Application of large language models (LLM) in education and schools
    •         Application of large language models (LLM) in corporate contexts
    •         LLM strategy consulting for companies (possibilities, data inventory analysis, selection of suitable models, data protection)
    •         Selection of suitable models for each use case
    •         Disinformation detection (fake news detection)
    •         Combination with existing projects at DFKI, for example CoMem
    •         Ethics, security and explainability of language model-based solutions
