Artifical Intelligence and Machine Learning (Foundations and Application)

Brief overview of the research field

This area deals with the study and automated simulation of intelligent behavior. One goal is to drive independent learning, so that computers can automatically solve problems such as pattern recognition, or simulate a certain behavior. The research finds practical applications in driver assistance systems, in disaster prevention training and in the design of industrial production processes. The findings also form the basis for a variety of other computer science disciplines, such as databases, robotics, human-computer interaction and computer games.

In Saarbrücken, research in this area is the DFKI’s central focus. However, groups within the Department of Computer Science and the Cluster of Excellence MMCI are also active in this field.

Das Projekt Tandem an der Universität des Saarlandes verfolgt das Ziel, die für eine wirtschaftliche oder industrielle Verwertung interessanten Forschungsergebnisse der saarländischen Informatik und der Max-Planck Institute durch einen Inkubationsprozess soweit weiterzuentwickeln, dass entweder Investoren die Produkte kaufen oder lizenzieren, oder neue Unternehmen im Saarland gegründet werden. Begleitende Aktivitäten im Projekt umfassen nationale und internationale Öffentlichkeitsarbeit, Maßnahmen zur Förderung des Technologietransfers im Allgemeinen sowie Formate zur Nachwuchsakquise im Bereich der Informatik. Das Projekt Tandem trägt dazu bei, die saarländische Informatik und den Wirtschaftsstandort Saarland zu stärken.
