    In the Pinakothek der Moderne: KI.ROBOTIK.DESIGN

    Exhibition opening on July 16, 2021

    Robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are playing a vital role in driving technological change. But their design also harbors the potential to take on new tasks in the development of processes and products. A new exhibition in the New Collection section of the modern art museum Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich explores the origins, history, current developments and the future of robotics and AI in four chapters. Planned by Prof. Sami Haddadin and implemented with his team, the exhibition will open on July 16, 2021.

    How climate change and fires are shaping the forests of the future

    Tracking future forest fires with AI

    As temperatures rise, the risk of devastating forest fires is increasing. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are using artificial intelligence to estimate the long-term impact that an increased number of forest fires will have on forest ecosystems. Their simulations show how Yellowstone National Park in the USA could change by the end of the century.

    Cornerstone laid for artificial intelligence-based factory KI.FABRIK

    Robots to support industrial work from home

    The State of Bavaria is supporting the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and a consortium of industrial partners with a total of 15 million euros in their efforts to develop the first prototype of an artificial intelligence-based factory ("KI.FABRIK") in Bavaria by 2030. Multifunctional, highly sensitive robots will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to co-work with humans both directly and over long distances.

    New AI technology protects privacy

    Medical diagnostics algorithm identifies pneumonia in paediatric x-ray images

    AI algorithms can support medical personnel in diagnosing illnesses. However, to train these algorithms, a precious good warranting careful protection must be accessed: medical data. A team of researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a technology that ensures that patients’ personal data are protected in the training of algorithms. It is now being used for the first time in an algorithm that identifies pneumonia in paediatric x-ray images.
