The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has achieved two major successes in the global competition for the leading Artificial Intelligence researchers of the future. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will fund two "Konrad Zuse Schools" for Artificial Intelligence in which TUM will play decisive roles. The decision was announced on Wednesday.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Whether in medicine, agriculture or the automotive industry: Artificial intelligence (AI) is a key technology that is already shaping our lives significantly. At TUM, we are investigating and developing intelligent systems, while keeping an eye on our responsibility for people and society at all times. Find out what's new in the fields of AI, robotics, machine learning and data science.
With grants of as much as five million euros, Humboldt Professorships are the best-endowed research prize in Germany. Prof. Angela Schoellig and Prof. Daniel Rückert will officially receive this honor on May 12, 2022. Both conduct research at TUM in the field of Artificial Intelligence. We speak with them in an interview about the benefits of their work and their scientific objectives.
The objective of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) lighthouse project "Digitaler Herz-OP" ("Digital Heart Surgery") is to enable more precise and lower-impact treatment of heart disease. Physicians and engineers at the German Heart Centre Munich (DHM) and the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) are working together closely in a leading-edge partnership to jointly develop new high-precision instruments for the operating room, the cardiac catheter lab and the intensive care unit. Oriented towards clinical challenges, innovative sensor data fusion, AI-augmented analyses and modern information technologies are used to create new digital treatment methods.
Treating the causes of diabetes, building a deep-sea telescope to find cosmic particles, and using machine learning to predict the effects of drugs on cells - these are the goals of three projects by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), which will supported in the future with the European Research Council's highly-endowed ERC Advanced Grants.
Deep learning algorithms to diagnose back pain, artificial enzymes for energy conversion facilities and a Covid-19 drug: the European Research Council (ERC) has announced funding for projects at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in the form of two Consolidator Grants and one Proof of Concept Grant. The ERC Grants are among the most prestigious research awards in Europe.
New supramolecular materials can be used in energy production and medical devices. The team of the TUM Innovation Network ARTEMIS aims to identify the best supramolecular materials for use with the help of machine learning.
At this very moment more than 8500 tons of space debris is in orbit around the earth. The extremely high speed of these objects means that even small pieces can cause major damage to satellites in the event of a collision. The start-up Vyoma, founded with the help of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), plans to build a warning system which will prevent these collisions.
By today’s signing of their cooperation agreement, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Augsburg (UNIA) and the Munich School of Philosophy (HFPH) have laid the foundation stone for the joint “Center for Responsible AI Technologies”, which will bring philosophical, ethical and social science issues into the development of AI technologies in an integrated approach to research.
The TUM robot GARMI, actually developed to care for elderly people, had a very special assignment this weekend: The autonomous service humanoid presented trophies to the winners at the Women's Ski World Cup awards ceremony in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in everyday life not only represents a technical challenge, it also raises a number of ethical questions. The TUM Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (IEAI) addresses these questions and will be assisted in the future by Japanese technology company Fujitsu.
