TUM Press Releases

BayWa AG will provide substantial financial support to the TUM Venture Lab Food-Agro-Biotech (FAB). The TUM Venture Labs, launched by the Technical University of Munich and UnternehmerTUM, compare favorably with the world’s leading start-up incubator programs. Specifically targeting key technology fields, they create dynamic ecosystems that bring together start-ups, research, investors and established companies. In the fields of sustainable agriculture and healthy nutrition, "we expect natural sciences and life sciences to join forces with artificial intelligence, robotics and sensor…

The State of Bavaria is supporting the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and a consortium of industrial partners with a total of 15 million euros in their efforts to develop the first prototype of an artificial intelligence-based factory ("KI.FABRIK") in Bavaria by 2030. Multifunctional, highly sensitive robots will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to co-work with humans both directly and over long distances.

Kick-off for the factory of the future: The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is starting - as announced by the Bavarian state government in its high-tech agenda - its flagship initiative for the first KI.FABRIK in Bavaria. The KI.FABRIK Bayern is a completely flexible and networked location for the local, crisis-proof and profitable production of the most modern IT and mechatronic high-tech components in Bavaria. Take part via livestream when the MSRM of TUM lays the foundation stone for the lighthouse initiative KI.FABRIK…

How can artificial intelligence (AI) deliver lasting benefits in our everyday lives and the working world? How will intelligent robotics, as the bridge between AI and machines, revolutionize industry? And which technologies will prevail in the long term? These questions are addressed by munich_i, a brand-new robotics and AI platform of the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), to be held as part of the online trade fair automatica sprint. The core element of munich_i is a Hightech-Summit on June 22, featuring prominent…

Reflexes protect our bodies – for example when we pull our hand back from a hot stove. These protective mechanisms could also be useful for robots. In this interview, Prof. Sami Haddadin and Johannes Kühn of the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) explain why giving test subjects a “slap on the hand” could lay the foundations for the robots of the future.

Prof. Hendrik Dietz and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang A. Wall, Principal Investigators affiliated with MSRM, won ERC Advanced Grants to develop artificial viruses from DNA origami and create a computer model of the human lungs using AI.

The Round Table on Engineers for the Future was an insightful conversation among experienced engineers about the future of a socially responsible engineering.

Ein Forschungsteam der Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence hat ein neues Frühwarnsystem für autonome Fahrzeuge entwickelt, das mit Künstlicher Intelligenz aus Tausenden realen Verkehrssituationen lernt. Eine Studie in Zusammenarbeit mit der BMW Group zeigt, dass das System bei heutigen selbstfahrenden Entwicklungsfahrzeugen bereits sieben Sekunden im Voraus mit mehr als 85 Prozent Genauigkeit vor einer potenziell kritischen Situation warnen kann, die die Autos noch nicht allein meistern können.

Heute haben TU-Vizepräsidentin Claudia Peus, Wissenschaftsminister Bernd Sibler, Professor Sami Haddadin und Vertreter von Infineon, Lufthansa und Eon von elf bis 13 Uhr die Gründung des Instituts für "Life Long Learning" virtuell zelebrieren.

Prof. Cheng untersucht, wie Robotik und Neurowissenschaften zusammengeführt werden können, um Patienten mit Mobilitätsproblemen zu rehabilitieren.
