Concentration: Cognitive Technical Systems (CTS) resp. Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Research in the field of cognitive technical systems focuses on the development of machines and robots that are able to perceive their environment autonomously and to interact with it like a living being. This field of research includes such areas as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, machine learning, image processing and computer graphics, natural language processing, and simulation. The University of Freiburg is one of those academic institutions where you can do research in virtually all of these fields .


Participating groups and persons

Mainly the following chairs and groups are involved in the research of these fields:
