The digital transfer is often described as the most comprehensive innovation since electrification. Artificial intelligence is seen as the next level to meet the greatest challenges of our time. In the future, Artificial Intelligence will permeate all areas of our lives and influence how we produce, work, consume and, of course, research.
Since the underlying challenges for AI range across several scientific areas, TU Dresden and Fraunhofer Society – have teamed up in a unique center, in order to bundle their expertise in a unique way and thus exploit the concentrated potential of scientists and practitioners.
The Center for Explainable and Efficient AI Technologies (CEE AI) already bears its vision in its name. When people recognize the methods and above all the advantages of artificial intelligence, for example in the interaction between man and machine, prejudices can be eliminated and acceptance in society can be improved. It goes without saying that optimizing energy efficiency in conjunction with ever-increasing amounts of data is of great importance. With the unique regional advantages of the strongest microelectronics location in Europe, an excellent university and strong industrial applications, however, one can draw on the full potential of the DRESDEN-concept.
I wish the CEE AI much success and good luck!
