More general information about Cyber Valley:
Cyber Valley promotes basic research as well as young scientists in the field of machine learning, computer vision and robotics. As a first step, ten new research groups were established, all lead by very promising, highly talented young scientists. Five research groups were set up at the participating universities Stuttgart and Tübingen and five at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS). Further research groups will follow in the coming years. Additionally, ten new university chairs for artificial intelligence and machine learning have been established at both universities, which have already been filled or are currently in the process of being filled. Furthermore, the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS) is the official Ph.D. program of Cyber Valley. As such, we are responsible for the training and supervision of significantly more than 200 doctoral students. Cyber Valley also promotes a start-up culture among the scientists so that findings from basic research can be applied quickly. Cyber Valley provides an ideal environment for the transfer from research to industry. In addition, joint research projects have been established among the partners, which will also strengthen the transfer in this area of future technology. The lively exchange between application-oriented industrial research and curiosity-driven basic research will create new impulses for both sides and create the ideal breeding ground for spin-offs.
