XAI Studio

Designing the AI of tomorrow

Methods in the field of Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) generate understandable explanations of decisions made by AI systems in an automated way. XAI aims to harness the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI). To ensure the transfer of promising research results into practice, the specific needs of users and the framework conditions in organisations must be taken into account.

This is where the XAI Studio comes in. What began in 2018 with basic research under the direction of Prof. Dr. Mathias Klier at the Institute of Business Analytics is now a nationwide active network of experts from research and start-ups. Interdisciplinary teams from research and practice are working in the XAI Studio to jointly implement innovation projects and test new fields of application for XAI in real life. The XAI Studio brings together technical and methodological expertise, professional project management and modern software development in one place. The goal of the XAI Studio is to accompany projects from the initial idea to the implementation of fully functional show cases, but also to support extensive implementation projects and the establishment of innovative AI in organisations.


The XAI Studio supports companies, public administration and other organisations in using the key technology XAI to harness the potential of AI. The project clusters competences from research and practice.

The focus of the XAI Studio lies on application areas where people interact with AI systems and where the lack of comprehensibility of AI systems presents a problem. XAI aims to enable employees of companies and organisations to comprehend AI-based decisions and thus utilise AI systems more easily and profitably. The XAI Studio is a great demonstration of the potential of Explainable AI and contributes to the effective and responsible use of AI.
