About the Research Center Trustworthy
Since 2007, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, the TU Dortmund University and the Universität Duisburg-Essen have been working closely together strategically under the roof of the UA Ruhr. By bundling forces, the services of the partner universities are systematically expanded. Under the motto "together better" there are now more than 100 cooperations in research, teaching and administration. With more than 120:000 students and almost 1:300 professors, the UA Ruhr is one of the largest and most powerful science locations in Germany. under the roof of the UAR Ruhr, the research center "Trustworthy Data Science and Security" addresses the trustworthiness of intelligent systems, e.g., in safety-critical applications or in social media. A unique, human-centered research approach covers the entire interdisciplinary research of trustworthy data analytics, explainable machine learning, and privacy-aware algorithms. The Center will hire 12 additional professors and research groups within the next three years.
