The Speinshart Monastery in the Upper Palatinate district of Neustadt an der Waldnaab could become the location for an international AI science and meeting center. The Bavarian AI Council, advisory committee that includes outstanding representatives from science and business as well as international AI experts among which are the MSRM (new MIRMI) members Prof. Alena Buyx, Prof. Alin Albu-Schäffer, Prof. Fabian Theis, and Prof. Sami Haddadin, spoke out in favor of this in its first meeting held on 15.09.2021.

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. [mehr]

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. [mehr]

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]

Reflexes protect our bodies – for example when we pull our hand back from a hot stove. These protective mechanisms could also be useful for robots. In this interview, Prof. Sami Haddadin and Johannes Kühn of the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) explain why giving test subjects a “slap on the hand” could lay the foundations for the robots of the future.

Prof. Hendrik Dietz and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang A. Wall, Principal Investigators affiliated with MSRM, won ERC Advanced Grants to develop artificial viruses from DNA origami and create a computer model of the human lungs using AI. [mehr]

The Round Table on Engineers for the Future was an insightful conversation among experienced engineers about the future of a socially responsible engineering. [mehr]

Ein Forschungsteam der Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence hat ein neues Frühwarnsystem für autonome Fahrzeuge entwickelt, das mit Künstlicher Intelligenz aus Tausenden realen Verkehrssituationen lernt. Eine Studie in Zusammenarbeit mit der BMW Group zeigt, dass das System bei heutigen selbstfahrenden Entwicklungsfahrzeugen bereits sieben Sekunden im Voraus mit mehr als 85 Prozent Genauigkeit vor einer potenziell kritischen Situation warnen kann, die die Autos noch nicht allein meistern können.

Heute haben TU-Vizepräsidentin Claudia Peus, Wissenschaftsminister Bernd Sibler, Professor Sami Haddadin und Vertreter von Infineon, Lufthansa und Eon von elf bis 13 Uhr die Gründung des Instituts für "Life Long Learning" virtuell zelebrieren. [mehr]

Die Staatsregierung hat den Bayerischen KI-Rat eingerichtet, um das KI-Netzwerk im Freistaat weiter auszubauen und zu stärken. Das Gremium unter der Leitung von Prof. Haddadin mobilisiert Strategien und Maßnahmen, um ein hervorragendes Forschungsumfeld zu gewährleisten, wichtige Impulse an die Politik zu geben und auch international die KI-Forschung zu vernetzen.
