Welcome to the Institute for Artificial Intelligence!

The Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IAI) directed by Prof. Michael Beetz is part of the Faculty of Computer Science and member of the Center for Computing and Communication Technologies (TZI) at the University of Bremen.

Best doctoral robotics thesis goes to Daniel Leidner

We congratulate Daniel Leidner for receiving the prize for the best doctoral robotics thesis in Europe at the European Robotics Forum 2018!

Daniel is co-leading the efforts of the EASE research project R4 at DLR and received his doctoral degree in 2017 from the Informatics faculty of the University of Bremen.

Google Summer of Code 2018

The Institute for Artificial Intelligence has been selected as mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2018 as one out of 212 organizations world-wide. The initiative, started in 2005, sponsors students during the summer months for contributing code to selected open source projects. This is our third year in the Google-sponsored program and we're looking forward to mentoring interested students and introducing them to our software tools and research.

You can find more information about the proposed projects as well as contact information of the designated mentors at our Google Summer of Code page.

IAI's Research in IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine

We are happy to announce that our research has been featured in an article titled "Cognition-Enabled Robot Manipulation in Human Environments" by Ersen, Öztop and Sarıel in IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine. The article mainly summarizes latest developments of cognitive robotics in everyday environments with particular focus on knowledge representation, perception, planning/adaptation and learning. Our software platforms, KnowRob, RoboSherlock, and CRAM, are cited in the respective sections of the article.

We recommend everybody to take a look at the article
