Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS
Cognitive systems, machine learning, artificial intelligence. Research for the future is part of our DNA – your safety is our primary scientific responsibility.
The researchers and scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS are always thinking a step ahead, working to adapt software technologies to the increasingly complex requirements and demands of our world.
As an independent industry partner, we conduct applied research at the highest scientific level into software engineering for safety-critical applications in the automotive sector and Industry 4.0 environments. Our aim is to ensure that artificial intelligence technologies can be validated so that they are safe enough to utilize even in autonomous vehicles.
Through safe intelligence, we make sure that cognitive systems function and are used with the best interests and well-being of people in mind. Systems that we can place our full trust in. For a world that we can depend on.
In order to drive these issues forward, the former Fraunhofer ESK was used as the foundation for the creation of a new Fraunhofer institute: the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS.
