The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems has campuses in Stuttgart and Tübingen. The institute combines theory, software, and hardware expertise in the research field of intelligent systems. The Tübingen campus focuses on how intelligent systems process information to perceive, act, and learn through research in the areas of machine learning, computer vision, and human-scale robotics. The Stuttgart campus has world leading expertise in micro- and nano-robotic systems, haptic perception, human-robot interaction, bio-hybrid systems, and medical robotics.
The University of Stuttgart is one of the leading technical universities in Germany, with global significance. The school aims to create an interdisciplinary integration of engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences based on the fundamentals of cutting-edge research at a disciplinary level. The university's vision is “intelligent systems for a sustainable society."
The University of Tübingen aims to provide excellent research and teaching in an effort to find solutions to the future challenges of a globalized society. As part of Germany’s elite “excellence program,” the university and region have become a highly innovative multidisciplinary research landscape, featuring innovative programs in the subjects of Machine Learning, Medical Technology and Data Science, Molecular Medicine, Computational Neuroscience, Computer Vision and more.
Academic and private sector partners are building bridges between curiosity-driven basic research and applied research. IMPRS-IS is proud to be the official Ph.D. school of Cyber Valley. Cyber Valley is Europe’s largest research consortium in the field of artificial intelligence. The state of Baden-Württemberg, the Max Planck Society with the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen, as well as Amazon, BMW AG, Daimler AG, IAV GmbH, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, and ZF Friedrichshafen AG are Cyber Valley’s founding partners of this initiative. In 2019, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft also joined Cyber Valley as a partner. Moreover, Cyber Valley receives support from the Christian Bürkert Foundation, the Gips-Schüle Foundation, the Vector Foundation, and the Carl Zeiss Foundation.
