Prof. Dr. Jan Peters, Head of the Robot Learning Group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Professor for Intelligent Autonomous Systems at the Department of Computer Science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, was appointed IEEE Fellow. He is honored for his important contributions to machine learning for robots to acquire motor skills. This work is of outstanding importance for current developments in artificial intelligence in two areas, autonomous robotics and machine learning, in particular reinforcement learning. They have the potential to make more intelligent robots more useful in our everyday lives in the future.

Die Auszeichnung ist mit 100.000 Euro dotiert. Theresia Bauer, Ministerin für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst, hat den Experten für Maschinelles Lernen im Rahmen eines Festakts in der Staatsgalerie Stuttgart geehrt.
An international team of Scientists observed the reptil running across the surface of water – a skill no other more mid-sized creature has. How, the scientists wondered, do geckos manage to walk on water this quickly? The new discovery of the mechanisms geckos employ puts the lizard in the superhero category.
Top European Machine Learning Scientists Join Forces to Establish European Excellence Network for Public Artificial Intelligence Research
Europe's largest research cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence is receiving a great deal of attention from politics, the media, science and people from the Stuttgart-Tübingen region and beyond. Here is a collection of the most frequently asked questions about this initiative.
