Research Area "Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Systems"

Intelligent systems behave in ways that we associate with intelligence. Yet intelligence is multifaceted - it can refer to individuals, but also to entire populations and their development. Intelligent systems can interact with their environment, taking into account natural senses and actuators. In doing so, their capabilities are often superior even to natural systems, such as in processing visual, auditory, haptic, or olfactory information.

Exemplary research topics include the following:

  • Modeling physical properties of real environments to create virtual images of reality.
  • Visualization and analysis of data and processes in engineering, bio- and natural sciences
  • Support for knowledge discovery ("data mining") in extremely large data sets using machine learning
  • Modality of interaction between users and the environment, e.g., in "smart spaces" using sensors and pattern recognition methods
  • User interaction behavior and adoption of intelligent systems in the operational environment
