Artificial Intelligence finds a home

Tübingen is to receive a competence center for artificial intelligence and machine learning.

This will make Tübingen one of four locations at which Germany’s Ministry of Education and Research plans to pool scientific projects in artificial intelligence. The Tübingen AI Center will provide research groups at the University and at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems with a place to develop learning systems. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research will sponsor the center with some 6.6 million Euros for an initial four years, starting 1 October.

The new center is part of the new Cyber Valley initiative in the Stuttgart-Tübingen region, where many partners in academia and industry have joined forces to work in the area of artificial intelligence.
