Welcome to the Institute for Artificial Intelligence!

The Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IAI) directed by Prof. Michael Beetz is part of the Faculty of Computer Science and member of the Center for Computing and Communication Technologies (TZI) at the University of Bremen.

Science Award 2022 for Startup Ubica Robotics GmbH

The startup Ubica Robotics GmbH, which emerged from the Institute for Artificial Intelligence, has received the Science Award endowed with 50,000 euros, in the category “Best Startup”. The prize was awarded by the EHI Foundation on June 1, 2022 in Düsseldorf.

Since their founding in 2020, Ubica develops autonomous scanning robots creating digital twins of retail stores. Their technology is based on research results from the “REFILLS” project, funded by the European Commission and provides information on the the location of products, store layout and the actual inventory and turnover of goods. By identifying gaps on shelves, a significant increase in efficiency and productivity in retail stores can be processed, as the supply chain can be individually optimized for each store. This not only makes processes more cost-efficient, but also improves the shopping experience for customers.

We sincerely congratulate Dr.-Ing. Ferenc Bálint-Benczédi, Georg Bartels, Alexis Maldonado und Jonas Reiling as the founders of Ubica for this special prize.
