Volkswagen participates in German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI)

Posted on 13. May, 2016 by in Volkswagen Canada

Volkswagen is participating in a German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), a world’s largest and many eminent systematic establishment specializing in synthetic comprehension (AI). By appropriation a interest in DFKI, a Volkswagen Group is reinforcing a investigate activities in a margin of future-oriented digital technologies.

“Artificial comprehension is a pivotal record for unconstrained pushing and therefore an investment in a future,” says Matthias Müller, Chairman of a Board of Management of a Volkswagen Group. “In future, a appearance will concede us to work even some-more intensively in this area. We wish to forge forward with AI investigate in a automotive attention and beyond. We also design a appearance in DFKI to yield new procedure for a digitalization of a plants and a stability automation of corporate processes.”

“Through a appearance in DFKI, Volkswagen will benefit entrance to a latest formula and expertise of a investigate center, generally from a recently determined Deep Learning Competence Center,” Prof. Wolfgang Wahlster, CEO of DFKI, emphasized. “I am really gratified that will be means to minister this believe to corner projects. For both parties, this represents a good event to make serve swell in a margin of AI.”

In serve to investigate in synthetic intelligence, DFKI specializes in a fields of robotics, Industry 4.0 and motorist assistance systems. In a corner project, Volkswagen and DFKI have therefore started to rise a program horizon ROCK serve to concede direct, tighten team-work between tellurian beings and robots. The complement was presented in a near-production unfolding during a Volkswagen AG IT Symposium 2016. Key facilities embody a dimensions of ambient conditions regulating several sensors, collision showing and deterrence as good as discerning gesticulate control.

Volkswagen and DFKI have cooperated on projects with and but open support for many years. The formula of this team-work include, for example, a antecedent of a intelligent automobile chair that can detect motorist fatigue. By appropriation a share in DFKI, Volkswagen has strong a existent cooperation. Volkswagen will designate a member to a DFKI Supervisory Board and play an active purpose in moulding a Center’s record and investigate roadmap. This will accelerate a send of innovations from high-level investigate to multitude and industry.

About a German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence

The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence is a heading investigate hospital in a margin of synthetic intelligence. In terms of series of employees and a volume of outmost supports (€42.5 million in 2015), it is a largest investigate core in a universe in this field. More than 750 employees from over 60 countries are now operative on new program solutions, generally in a fields of appurtenance learning, unconstrained systems, robotics, information analysis, practical existence and intelligent bureau systems.
