Experimental field for cognitive systems at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg.

The Fraunhofer IKTS project group "Cognitive Material Diagnostics" at the Cottbus site develops intelligent systems for material diagnostics based on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The aim of the interdisciplinary team of experts is to quickly transfer research results into applications with social relevance. The results enable them to become effective at an early stage and thus support business processes from virtual product development to comprehensive automation and networking.


Research on cognitive material diagnostics in an interdisciplinary research team

The "Cognitive Materials Diagnostics" group combines the IKTS know-how in materials diagnostics and non-destructive testing in machine learning and data analysis with the competencies of the Brandenburg Technical University (BTU) and the Lusatian Center for Artificial Intelligence (LZKI).


Cognitive material diagnostics in the Lausitz mining region

The development of research activities in the mining region is intended to create new qualified and forward-looking jobs in the fields of cognitive materials, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
