In this research area, three projects are currently being pursued: Orient, KIAM and EcoDrive:
In the Orient project, as part of a large research consortium, we are exploring how to improve the introduction of new technologies and the learning of new skills ("orientation") for effective use of technologies in the sense of co-creation in the field of care. In particular, the use of robotic caregivers will be considered. While collaboration with stakeholders in the care sector is recurring within the research project, we are not working with fixed partners from the field in this project.
The goal of the KIAM project is a regional competence center "AI in the working world of industrial SMEs" (KIAM). It is to serve as a contact point for companies and all other actors in the industrial working world. This project takes place within the framework of the technology cluster it's OWL with partners from practice.
As part of the EcoDrive project, we are using field experiments on professional drivers to research how entrepreneurs need to use telematics systems to achieve a most efficient, effective and sustainable improvement in driving behavior. The project takes place in cooperation with permanent partners from the practice.
In the framework of the for Diffusion of Quality AI project, we as a multidisciplinary and international team under the leadership of the chair of Prof. Grieß are investigating the factors that determine the diffusion, acceptance and quality of AI as well as its impact on society. The research of our chair focuses in particular on the area of human-machine interaction.
