New research build­ing for the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lübeck: LEMMI is here to stay.

A very for­tu­nate devel­op­ment: The Uni­ver­si­ty of Lübeck has been grant­ed a new research build­ing (by rec­om­men­da­tion of the Wis­senschaft­srat, a piv­otal, joint fed­er­al- and state-lev­el agency for these matters) .

Jonas Obleser had the priv­i­lege to help steer the con­cep­tu­al stages of this new “Lübeck envi­ron­ment for minds and machines in inter­ac­tion” (LEMMI – named after no famous cul­tur­al icon in par­tic­u­lar). See here for the press release by the Wis­senschaft­srat; the final say – as usu­al – will be with the „Gemein­same Wis­senschaft­skon­ferenz“ (GWK) of Ger­man fed­er­al and state gov­ern­ments, which will con­vene next in July 2024.

The uni­ver­si­ty came out with a press release just now, and we are all very excit­ed that in the years to come a new, 3.000+ m2 research build­ing worth up to 63 mil­lion € might be built on Lübeck cam­pus premis­es that will cater specif­i­cal­ly to the needs of immer­sive AI-steered envi­ron­ments and all specifics of psy­cho­log­i­cal, com­put­er-sci­en­tif­ic and robot­ic research on human–AI interactions.
