Thinking fast & slow: New DFKI project aims at making Deep Learning methods more reliable

Press release

When people face a problem, they can look at it calmly and logically, or they can decide spontaneously and emotionally. Modern computers are in a similar position: Thanks to their training with large amounts of data, Deep Learning methods can deliver fast, yet incomprehensible results. Scientists of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) now investigate how these methods can be proven by formal procedures and thus become more reliable – without losing their speed. The new method will be tested by a juggling industrial robot. The project “Fast&Slow” is funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) with roughly 1.2 Million Euros.

Protection from attacks by quantum computers: DFKI starts project for long-term encryption of medical data

Press release

Since Google announced its alleged “quantum supremacy”, they have become a hot topic once again: The expected efficacy of future quantum computers presents a great risk towards data security. This means that for the protection of long-term sensible information such as medical data, an effective post-quantum cryptography already needs to be developed and prepared for deployment. In a new project titled “PQC4MED”, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and its partners work on procedures in order to protect medical data from attacks by quantum computers via updateable systems.

Project SMILE: How smart houseplants and block-based programming can raise interest for computer science in female students

Press release

In western countries, computer science courses are still dominated by men: Women in Europe rarely make up more than a quarter of all students – in most countries, they represent less than 20 percent. As part of the joint project SMILE, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the University of Bremen and further project partners work on raising interest in computer science amongst young female students. A new study shows that block-based programming and the usage of smart everyday objects can help giving the students more confidence in their programming skills and support the development of a positive attitude towards computer science among them.

AI-Space for Intelligent Health Systems: Federation recommends funding of more than 10 million Euros

Press release

Good news from the capital: The Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy of Germany (BMWi) has decided to support the funding of a Northern-German competence center for artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine. Hereby, the next step in the selection process of the competition titled „Artificial Intelligence as a Driver of Economically Relevant Ecosystems“ has been taken. Depending on the parliamentary resolution on the federal household, around 10 million Euros will go to Northern Germany. The project was created by the universities of Luebeck, Kiel, Hamburg and Bremen as well as the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). The project “AI-Space for Intelligent Health Systems” (KI-SIGS) is supported by the state governments of Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg and Bremen.

Subjects wanted: DFKI tests health app with holistic data for EU project CrowdHEALTH

Press release

No matter if it is running, sleeping or eating: More and more people use digital technologies in order to monitor and optimise their health. However, due to the numerous different service providers, this creates very diverse amounts of data that are hard to put into comparison. A new web app developed as part of the EU project CrowdHEALTH by the research department for Cyber-Physical Systems of the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and its international partners now aims at safely combining and evaluating this data with AI based analysis. The DFKI is now looking for subjects willing to test the new health app.

New open source platform VerSys allows early software tests via virtual chips

Press release

Open source is on the rise: Alongside open software, new hardware architectures offer an independent and cost-effective alternative to large chip manufacturers. In order to be able to write and test software for the processors of the future even before their production, the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is working on a new verification platform. This is good news not only for the German industry, but also for start-ups. The project VerSys is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) with roughly 1.6 million Euros.

Mehr als nur Fiktion – Entwurfswerkzeug für Nanotechnologie "fiction" mit Best Research Demo Award ausgezeichnet

Press release

Die Computertechnik steht vor einem Umbruch. Neue Technologien werden herkömmliche Chips in naher Zukunft ersetzen. Doch dafür braucht es auch geeignete Entwurfswerkzeuge. Diese werden unter anderem am Deutschen Forschungszentrums für Künstliche Intelligenz (DFKI) und der Universität Bremen entwickelt. Für ihre Software „fiction“, die den vollautomatischen Entwurf zukunftsweisender Nanotechnologien ermöglicht, wurden die Bremer Wissenschaftler nun mit dem Best Research Demo Award auf dem IEEE Computer Society Annual Symposium on VLSI (ISVLSI) in Miami (USA) ausgezeichnet.

Projekt ConText gestartet – Intelligente textile Oberflächen für das Smart Home

Press release

Das Grundprinzip intelligenter Wohnumgebungen ist es, technische Systeme überall dort im Haus zu installieren, wo sie gebraucht werden. Allerdings sind nicht immer die dafür notwendigen Strom- und Kommunikationsanschlüsse vorhanden. Im neuen Projekt ConText entwickelt ein Konsortium unter Koordination des Deutschen Forschungszentrums für Künstliche Intelligenz (DFKI) eine nutzerfreundliche und intuitive Technologie für smarte Textiloberflächen, die Wände und Böden im Wohnbereich für die kabelbasierte Stromversorgung und Kommunikation nutzbar macht. Das Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) fördert das Projekt mit rund 2,9 Millionen Euro.
