The Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML) will receive permanent funding from the German government and the state of Bavaria. MCML, a joint initiative by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), is one of six AI centers of excellence throughout Germany. As a result, regional research into artificial intelligence (AI) and particularly machine learning will gain considerable cachet within the knowledge hub of Munich and beyond.
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.
In a public symposium on Friday, July 22, organized by the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, researchers will give an overview of current advances in artificial intelligence (AI). Prof. Xiaoxiang Zhu and Prof. Daniel Cremers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) will be among the speakers. The event is aimed at an interested public and will be broadcast live via online stream.
A mere nine months after the beginning of construction, the first section of the new Siemens Technology Center at the TUM Campus Garching has been completed. On Monday the topping-out ceremony was attended by high-ranking representatives from Siemens, TUM and the Bavarian State Government. The new building will house more than 450 researchers from Siemens and approximately 150 TUM employees and students who will work together on digital twins, the industrial Internet of Things, robotics and automation.
The Zentrum für Digitale Medizin und Gesundheit (ZDMG) will bring together researchers in medicine, informatics and mathematics. They will collaborate on new healthcare developments based on data science and artificial intelligence and pursue clinical applications. The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is to receive around 43.6 million euros in funding from the federal government and the state of Bavaria for the new research building at the university hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar.
An app for treating chronic diseases, a construction robot and a cooling technology for quantum engineering applications: these products have been successfully launched by the start-ups Kaia Health Software, KEWAZO and Kiutra. Yesterday they were the final nominees for the TUM Presidential Entrepreneurship Award – with first prize going to Kaia Health. Before the announcement at the Entrepreneurship Day, guests from the EuroTech Universities Alliance discussed the European innovation ecosystem.
From next-gen intelligent systems and smart networks to robot-human interactions: at the second Hightech Summit under the auspices of the munich_i trade fair, scientists and industry experts offered a glimpse at how a future based on robotics and AI could look. Along with researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and such renowned institutions as Imperial College London and Delft University, participants included robotics trailblazers from Boston Dynamics and Berkshire Grey as well as representatives of SAP, Google and Roche.
Since October 2021, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) have been collaborating on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI). Part of the collaboration is a series of public webinars on AI and work. In the next edition on Wednesday, June 15, researchers will talk about the labor that that enables modern AI development, which is concentrated in the Global South.
International talks and presentations at the high-tech summit, demonstrations of some 30 practical applications created by startups and in current research projects at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), AI.Society panel discussions, and Robothon®, a competition for young AI and robotics talent: munich_i is a high-tech platform being held under the auspices of the automatica trade fair from June 21–24 2022. It will show how humans and machines are converging – and provide fuel for debate, for example on the essential steps on the road ahead, especially for the international networking of various research avenues and the high-tech industry.
Machine learning is playing an ever-increasing role in biomedical research. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now developed a new method of using molecular data to extract subtypes of illnesses. In the future, this method can help to support the study of larger patient groups.
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.
