In order to use artificial intelligence in an interdisciplinary way and to promote digitalisation, the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein has approved two million Euros to Kiel University for the research project "KI@CAU Datencampus Kiel". The successful proposal had been submitted by four computer scienstits, one of them being Matthias Renz, member of both ROOTS and CRC 1266.   
The project aims at boosting the use of artificial intelligence across disciplines, promoting the digitalisation of science in Schleswig-Holstein, and using the latest discoveries from computer science to address current social and economic questions in a targeted manner. 
In order to launch interdisciplinary cooperation in the Data Campus, the scientists will form tandem initiatives with scientists from other disciplines. The tandem related to ROOTS and CRC 1266 will be made up by Professor Matthias Renz and Dr. Tim Kerig working on the topic Big Exchange in the field of Computational Archaeology.
