IMPRS-IS is located at two sites and brings together outstanding research and training opportunities in the southwestern German region of Stuttgart (a modern tech-focused city) and Tübingen (an historic college town). Research at the Stuttgart site of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems covers small-scale robotics, self-organization, haptic perception, bio-inspired systems, medical robotics, and physical intelligence. The Tübingen site of the institute concentrates on machine learning, computer vision, robotics, control, and the theory of intelligence.
The training and research activities of the MPI sites are matched by those of the universities in Stuttgart and Tübingen. Research at the University of Stuttgart focuses on control theory, robotics, machine learning, and computer vision, while the work at the University of Tübingen covers perceptual inference, psychophysics, machine learning, 3D appearance acquisition, and computational neuroscience.
We know relocating to a new country is a big step. IMPRS-IS is here to help our international researchers in any way we can. We also have support from international offices at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, as well as the universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen, to help make this transition as smooth as possible.
