On 1 May 2020, three research teams in Hannover, Berlin and Munich began their joint research on current questions of artificial intelligence (AI) in "International Future Laboratories". They emerged from a competition of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and will be funded with up to five million euros each over a period of three years. The three Future Laboratories bring together AI researchers from Germany and abroad and, thus, strengthen the international dimension of German AI research.
Artificial Intelligence and Personalised Medicine
The Leibniz Future Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence at L3S in Hannover works on intelligent, reliable and responsible systems with an application focus on personalized medicine. Goal is to use machine learning to improve, among other things, the diagnosis and to accelerate drug development and individualized treatment to improve.
Using Artificial Intelligence for Earth Observation
The future laboratory AI4EO, led by the Technical University Munich, will focus on the development of AI technologies for Earth observation. For example, satellite data is to be processed using intelligent big-data analysis the global urbanization, the food of the world population or the management of natural hazards.
More efficient bio-laboratories through artificial intelligence
The third future laboratory KIWI-biolab will use AI technologies to analyse data on microorganisms and to enable computers to independently plan laboratory experiments. The main focus is on on the development of new drugs and the production of sustainable plastics and raw materials, the research team is supported by the Technical University of Berlin.
