The Data and AI Systems Lab (formerly Data Management Lab) was founded in 2017 by Prof. Carsten Binnig and is part of the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt in Darmstadt, Germany. In 2022, we joined forces with the Distributed and Networked Systems Lab to form the Systems Group .

TU Darmstadt is one of the leading technical universities in Germany. Its Computer Science department consistently ranks among the top 5 in Germany. TU Darmstadt offers a unique environment for research in data management due to strong cooperations with other groups like the Machine Learning Lab or Distributed Systems Programming Lab, as well as ample interdisciplinary interaction.


We conduct research in several areas of databases and data management in conjunction with artificial intelligence (AI). The groups main focus areas are Systems for AI and AI for Systems.


Our lab regularly offers courses, seminars and labs on various data management topics. Furthermore, we offer term projects and Bachelors and Masters thesis projects with different focus areas.
