Amazon to join Cyber Valley

The technology company is supporting the research collaboration on AI initiated by the Max Planck Society

Cyber Valley has attracted another collaboration partner from industry. In future, Amazon intends to participate in the research collaboration initiated by the Max Planck Society in December 2016 which is one of the biggest projects in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in Europe. In addition to its commitment to Cyber Valley, Amazon is also setting up its own research center adjacent to the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen and will step up collaboration with the Max Planck Society. “We appreciate Amazon’s commitment in the Cyber Valley and to research on artificial intelligence,” remarked Max Planck President Martin Stratmann. “We gain another strong cooperation partner who will further increase the international significance of research in the area of machine learning and computer vision in the Stuttgart and Tübingen region.”
