Welcome to the Institute for Artificial Intelligence!

The Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IAI) is directed by Prof. Michael Beetz.

As a research institute, we conduct basic scientific research in the field of cognition-enabled robotics for everyday activities.

As part of the Faculty of Computer Science, we have a project-based teaching approach. Our hands-on projects in teaching include SuTuRoProjekt: SUTURO - sudo tidy-up-my-room, IntEL4CoRo and the annual EASE Fall School.

The IAI is member of the Center for Computing and Communication Technologies (TZI) as well as the high-profile area Minds, Media and Machines (MMM) at the University of Bremen.


Funded projects
EASE (SFB 1320) is a collaborative research center for everyday activities.
IntEL4CoRo provides an interactive learning environment.
euROBIN is a European Network of Excellence that the IAI is part of.
REMARO develops a reliable and safe AI system for underwater robotics.
Tracebot enables robotic systems to understand what they do.
Internal projects
CRAM is a software toolbox for the implementation of autonomous robots.
KnowRob is a knowledge processing system for robots.
OpenEASE is a web-based knowledge service providing robot and human activity data.
GISKARD is a framework for constraint- and optimization-based robot motion planning and control.
RoboKudo is a perception framework targeted for robot manipulation tasks.

A full overview of our ongoing and completed projects can be found here.


Our contribution to this year's Informatica Feminale

Women face unique challenges in computer science, a field that has been designed for men for too long, and where women are still underrepresented. Although information technology has been with us for a long time and artificial intelligence is now rapidly finding its way into more and more areas of life, there seem to be few efforts at a professional level to integrate the diverse interests of women into computer science.

Instead, computer science as a discipline still tends to be oriented towards the traditionally male-dominated worlds of experience in everyday life and work, resulting in products and applications geared predominantly towards men. As a result, computer science threatens to remain an unattractive area for women, where they do not see themselves represented.

A recap of the AI Innovation Made in Bremen event

On April 9th, we had the opportunity to host the โ€œTZI Roadshow: KI Innovation made in Bremenโ€ event in our facilities. The event kicked off with inspiring welcome speeches from the University of Bremenโ€™s Chancellor, Frauke Meyer, and Bremenโ€™s Senator for Environment, Climate, and Science, Kathrin Moosdorf. Both highlighted the transformative impact of AI, especially its potential to revolutionize the Bremen region.
