Although deep learning algorithms are righteously handled as one of the key aspects of modern Artificial Intelligence (AI), the conclusions of the methods do not offer a high degree of security. Many areas with potential for AI application bear too many risks to be controlled by systems that are not verifiable. The two Bremen-based research departments of the DFKI are working on a new method for system control, combining the advantages of fast self-learning and reliable verification via symbolical models. The project VeryHuman, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), runs for four years and aims to prove its innovative method by making a humanoid robot walk.
Encryption software plays an important role on the path to better data protection, but computer systems can also be attacked physically. By intercepting current fluctuations or causing errors via electromagnetic pulses, devices such as smartphones and key cards become vulnerable to attacks. In a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and several project partners have developed a method in order to protect data from physical attacks - for example by making hardware implementations of current encryption independently dodge attackers.

Project AUTOASSERT: DFKI scientists develop software tool for the support of German electronics companies
Microelectronics is known as a key technology for many future developments, from autonomous cars to intelligent fridges. Small and medium-sized companies play an important role in the production process – and are now supported by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). The DFKI cooperates with COSEDA Technologies in the project AUTOASSERT, in which methods for the early verification of heterogeneous systems are developed in order to save time and costs and thus make German companies more competitive. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with roughly 830,000 Euros.
Artificial intelligence and healthcare are two major areas of future growth that are strongly represented in Northern Germany. The project KI-SIGS ("AI space for intelligent healthcare systems), companies, universities and research institutes from Northern Germany are combining their competences in these areas in order to make new potentials for growth available. The project funded by the federal government of Germany with ten million Euros has officially started with a kick-off meeting of the involved partners on 27 May.

More space for Artificial Intelligence: DFKI Bremen starts construction on extension with new test sites and workshops
Six years and six days after the opening of the first building, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Bremen has started the second construction phase on Monday. The extension in the Robert-Hooke-Strasse 1 in the Bremen Technology Park adds new test sites, workshops and integration rooms to the research institute and thus creates a unique offer for science and industry. The second construction phase also includes new offices and conference rooms. Around two thirds of the construction costs are financed with own resources, while another third comes from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Robotics in care: DFKI Bremen and Johanniter work on the hospital bed of the future in BMBF-funded project
Physical strains are one of the main reasons for sick leaves and early retirement amongst nursing staff. In order to support workers and give patients more independency, the two Bremen-based research departments of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe and the universities of Oldenburg and Osnabrueck work on robotic systems and sensor solutions for hospital beds. The project AdaMeKoR is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) with roughly 1.8 Million Euro.

Mobile smart homes and expanded living labs: DFKI and TU Berlin make the future of living more accessible
With commercial smart home gadgets, a connected living is already possible today – but aims less at people that would especially profit from intelligent assistance. In order to create a close exchange with the society in their research of smart everyday objects, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the Technical University of Berlin develop a new living lab infrastructure as a realistic test environment that present the advantages of the future living to the public. The team presents the project KosmoS, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research with roughly 1.1 million Euros, at a networking meeting today.
