RationAI research group, founded by researchers from the Faculty of Informatics and Institute of Computer Science at Masaryk University, concentrates on developing cutting-edge AI methods in biomedicine. We aim to create an appropriate environment that will maximally support cooperation between domain experts and computer science specialists, focusing on explaining the behavior of these AI methods (explainable AI, XAI). As an indispensable part of such an effort, we consider traceable development, training, and validation of the AI methods using automated provenance information generation and robust visualization systems. Furthermore, for specific domains, we also develop a trusted environment for the validation of AI methods using evaluation metrics developed in tight cooperation with the domain experts.

We have active collaboration with groups from Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute (pathology), MagicWare company (obesitology), Biobanking and BioMolecular resources Research Infrastructure – European Research Infrastructure Consortium (large biomedical datasets), Medical University Graz (pathology, data security). We welcome students of all levels to participate in exciting interdisciplinary research in artificial intelligence.
