appliedAI is for companies, startups, professionals and students.
UnternehmerTUM, one of the largest non-profit innovation and entrepreneurship centers in Europe, joins forces with leading public sector, industry and tech players in the appliedAI initiative. Combining corporate experience, entrepreneurship, latest research, and creative mindset – we accelerate the adoption of Artificial Intelligence in industry as well as society. To achieve this goal, we provide a broad spectrum of products and services, all focused on the understanding, development, and implementation of latest AI. We give our ecosystem access to cutting edge technology, cross-industry knowledge and best-practices.
Our technological focus
Four areas stand out for their impact on both society and industry. To master these challenges and shape the post-AI world, we as an ecosystem need to be at the forefront of their understanding and implementation.
Understanding what was measured is now, understanding what to measure is next
What are the hidden relations in a database? The latent topics in a discussion? The traces of a network of tax evasion? We draw from state of the art pattern recognition to identify useful features, from Bayesian optimization to maximize insight yield from expensive data or from network analysis to uncover complex relationships.
Language translation is now, sensory translation is next
Programming starts from clean rules expressed as text. The next reality of AI is interfacing with fuzzy human perception, and beyond that, with thought. Identifying objects and actions allows AI to augment the world of the senses — mixtape reality or even generate entirely new virtual experiences. We project texts, sounds and images to abstract spaces that uncover conceptual similarities.
Robots in the assembly line is now, autonomous systems in the wild is next.
Agents perceive the world through AI-powered cameras, microphones and network connections. They can also displace objects, mix liquids, move around, or “feel” the surroundings. With one of the largest MakerSpaces in Europe we teach the internet of things to give senses to the city and our robots to behave autonomously in it.
Task-supporting machines is now, human-supporting machines is next.
Penetrating insights about people from large-scale behavior tracking, alternate realities that feel real, machines that behave on their own – these require a precise understanding of the societal implications. We are uniquely positioned as a non-profit with technical competence to sketch the AI we want.
