EAI IC4S: Best Paper Award

The EAI IC4S international conference has awarded the prize for the best paper to Fraunhofer IKS for the paper "Concept for Safe Interaction of Driverless Industrial Trucks and Humans in Shared Areas". The topic of the paper is a concept for safe and efficient collaboration between autonomous mobile robots (AMR) and people in shared areas.

 

Is it all a cluster game?

It is essential for safety-critical applications of deep neural networks to determine when new inputs are significantly different from the training distribution. This paper explores this out-of-distribution (OOD) detection problem for image classification using clusters of semantically similar embeddings of the training data and exploit the differences in distance relationships to these clusters between in- and out-of-distribution data.

 

 

Beyond Test Accuracy: The Effects of Model Compression on CNNs

Model compression is widely employed to deploy convolutional neural networks on devices with limited computational resources or power limitations. For high stakes applications, it is, however, important that compression techniques do not impair the safety of the system. This paper investigates the changes introduced by three compression methods that go beyond the test accuracy.

 

White paper

Trustworthy AI for Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS)

Together with the Huawei Research Center Munich, Fraunhofer IKS has written a white paper on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). It summarizes current and future challenges of introducing AI into Intelligent Traffic Systems in a trustworthy manner. Here, special focus is laid on Smart Cities.

 

 

White paper

Machine Learning Methods for Enhanced Reliable Perception

As part of the ADA Lovelace Center for Analytics, Data and Applications,  Fraunhofer IKS has developed a technical white paper on machine learning methods for reliable perception of autonomous systems. It reviews, develops and evaluates new methods for quantifying uncertainty in deep neural networks.
