RSI Mission Statement

Intelligent Machines: New Frontiers for our Digitally Connected Society

The goal of RSI is to significantly advance the scientific foundations for intelligent machines capable of acting autonomously in our world and in close interaction with their human creators. These machines shall be part of global and heterogeneous networks that enable the use of massive computing power and high-speed communication to increase their capabilities and thus significance and contribution to our society. For this, we bridge the gap between disciplines such as automatic control, robotics, machine learning, and human motor control. Our exploratory urge brings us to the fundamentally unknowns in understanding and designing intelligence and its embodiment.
