Top researcher appointed Bosch-endowed chair

cyvy 19 June 2018 Press Release

Bosch endows the chair with 5.5 million euros: Matthias Hein to research machine learning at the University of Tübingen ‒ Björn Andres, expert in artificial intelligence, appointed to Industry on Campus professorship

Bosch is bringing a top researcher in machine learning to the state of Baden-Württemberg: Professor Matthias Hein, 42, is joining the staff at the University of Tübingen thanks to a Bosch-endowed professorship that the company will provide 5.5 million euros to support over ten years as part of Cyber Valley. Hein’s research is on statistical learning for applications relating to image processing and genetics. His focus is on developing reliable and comprehensible learning processes. A case in point is the development of automated decision-making systems that apply machine learning processes to rule out any discriminatory decisions. A current example of such a decision is when a system is more inclined to approve a loan to a man than to a woman. “Such an example shows that machine learning processes can have a positive effect on society,” Hein says. “This is a goal well worth pursuing.”

Go-ahead for Cyber Valley

cyvy 15 December 2016 Press Release

Science and industry form one of Europe's largest research partnerships in artificial intelligence

Intelligent systems will shape our future: they could drive us as autonomous cars, help us out in the home on a daily basis or perform medical services as tiny robots. An initiative by the Max Planck Society and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in the Stuttgart-Tübingen area is bringing together partners from science and industry to establish Cyber Valley where systems can be developed that will be capable of performing such feats. Winfried Kretschmann, Minister-President of Baden-Württemberg, Theresia Bauer, Minister of Science in Baden-Württemberg and Martin Stratmann, President of the Max Planck Society, together with the other project participants, have launched the initiative on Thursday, 15 December 2016 in Stuttgart's Neues Schloss.
