How can artificial intelligence (AI) deliver lasting benefits in our everyday lives and the working world? How will intelligent robotics, as the bridge between AI and machines, revolutionize industry? And which technologies will prevail in the long term? These questions are addressed by munich_i, a brand-new robotics and AI platform of the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), to be held as part of the online trade fair automatica sprint. The core element of munich_i is a Hightech-Summit on June 22, featuring... [mehr]

When we are old, who takes care of us? Because in 30 years the demographic change will be in full swing: 6.1 million people in Germany who need to be cared for and too few people who look after them. That doesn't work. That means we need a solution! One option are robots in care. The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence team develop robots that could support and relieve the nursing staff. Beta stories shows in this documentary what robots can already do in care and why we will need care robots in the future. [mehr]
