Center of competence for data analytics and artificial intelligence in industry
The Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS is a participant in the ADA Lovelace Center for Analytics, Data and Applications, a data analytics collaboration platform for research and industry in Bavaria. The goal of the center is to develop new data analytics processes and algorithms for concrete AI applications that offer added value for industry, data-driven services and research alike.
The ADA Lovelace Center was initiated by Fraunhofer IIS and its working group for supply chain services SCS. Apart from Fraunhofer IKS, other organizations participating in this research network include FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, LMU Munich and Fraunhofer IISB.
Validation of autonomous systems
Through its participation in the ADA Lovelace Center, the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS is conducting research into the validation of autonomous systems, such as autonomous driving and Industry 4.0. To ensure basic functionality in the first place, autonomous systems require machine learning processes that can monitor and process complex and unknown situations. When systems with higher automation classifications (level 3 or higher) are involved, so-called deep learning approaches are often used, which employ neural networks for context recognition. This allows autonomous vehicles to carry out tasks such as recognizing objects, interpreting traffic situations and conveying driving instructions.
