Thus, the Swabian economy should benefit from artificial intelligence – Augsburg

Much research is being done at the University of Augsburg on the future topic of artificial intelligence. Therefore, over 30 million euros have been invested in the new AI production network. The showroom for a large project is now open – and is already showing the first results.

Artificial intelligence is one of the major problems of our time. Therefore, the University of Augsburg carries out a lot of research in this area in particular and presents the results. But it is expensive. Therefore, the rector of the university, prof. dr. Sabine Doering-Manteuffel was delighted to find that the University of Augsburg received EUR 33 million in funding under the Bavarian high-tech agenda and was thus able to focus more on the AI ​​manufacturing network. The salon is now ready; The 5,000 m2 hall, which is used for research purposes, is scheduled to be occupied in September.

Business and science should work better together

The AI ​​production network should not only serve research as an end in itself. Contrary. The acquired knowledge should also benefit the economy. Therefore, various applications are presented in the showroom. Example: intelligent sensor systems. They can be used in machines, for example, to detect wear of individual parts without damaging workpieces. Thanks to this, you can save a lot of money, because we minimize production errors – explains prof. dr hab. Markus sauce.

Another project concerns the subject of cybercrime, and was led by prof. dr hab. Bernhard Bauer introduced. Special programs are designed to help companies find and fix potential vulnerabilities in their IT systems. Cyber ​​attacks on companies are becoming a growing problem. A well-known recent example was the attack on Fendt’s parent company Agco, which also put production in Bavarian Swabia on a temporary halt.

How will the AI ​​production network continue after funding?

Not only were academics in attendance euphoric about the new AI manufacturing network, but also Minister of State Markus Blume, who also gave a welcome speech at the opening of the showroom. However, Doering-Manteuffel also made claims against him. Although the amount of funding is huge, it “only” lasts until 2025 – explained the rector of the University of Augsburg. According to Doering-Manteuffel, politicians must therefore plan ahead so that the project that Augsburg ultimately uses as a place of study and business has a future even after funding ends.
