Vision & Mission

Our vision: An AI-competent society

Our mission: We strengthen AI skills and competences through innovative, digital learning opportunities.

About the AI Campus


The AI Campus is a pilot project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) focused on developing the prototype for a digital learning platform specifically geared towards AI. Since 2019, the AI Campus has been jointly developed by the Stifterverband, the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), NEOCOSMO and the mmb Institute, and a beta version was released in July 2020.  


Our learning opportunities

Our learning platform is specifically focused on learners, with the aim of providing them with a diverse selection of high-quality AI learning opportunities all in one place.  “AI Campus Originals” are being produced specifically for the platform. We also appreciate and review educational resources that are available online and publish those under the label “External” learning opportunities.

All learning opportunities are available free of charge. In addition, AI Campus Originals are openly licensed (CC BY-SA 4.0).

The AI Campus encompasses the foundations of AI as well as interdisciplinary research in specific fields such as machine learning. In addition, the AI Campus is aimed at developing learning opportunities that specifically address the needs of individual sectors or specialist areas, such as the use of AI in medicine.

Our guiding principles

1 Technical interoperability and cooperation with other platforms and initiatives are considered to be essential principles.

2 Learners and learning processes are at the focus of platform and content development (Shift from Teaching to Learning).

3 The instructional design for the AI Campus is sustainable, innovative and includes social learning formats.

4 The platform is based on agile, participative and user-oriented product development.

5 The learning formats include AI methods (e.g. learning analytics and recommendation systems) and offer a high degree of clarity, personalization and adaptability.

6 All educational resources created and technologies used follow the principle of openness, e.g. by developing open educational resources (OER) and open code.
