New Fraunhofer Center for Cognitive Production Systems and AI
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has simultaneously launched two new research centers on Cognitive systems and artificial intelligence. Both are key technologies in value creation and will play a crucial role in deciding Germany’s future viability for technological growth.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is continuously expanding its expertise in this area, on both a cross-institute und cross-institution basis. These centers will focus on strategic technologies of primary importance to Germany’s success as an industrial location. In addition to the official founding of the Fraunhofer Center for Cognitive Production Systems CPS at the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU in Dresden, Fraunhofer and the Technische Universität Dresden also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the creation of the Center for Explainable and Efficient AI Technologies CEE AI.
AI-based technologies are fundamentally transforming almost every sector, from production of goods to logistics through to medical technology. The large number of possible applications alone is reason enough for public interest. In Dresden Fraunhofer has now founded the Center for Cognitive Production Systems, and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has joined the Technische Universität Dresden in signing an MoU on the founding of the Center for Explainable and Efficient AI Technologies.
