ML2R – The Competence Center Machine Learning Rhine-Ruhr
The Competence Center Machine Learning Rhine-Ruhr is one of four national nodes for bringing the development of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Germany to a worldwide leading level. To this end, we establish cutting-edge research, support young scientists and strengthen technology transfer in companies.
We connect pioneering research institutions in Germany: the Technical University of Dortmund, the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS in Sankt Augustin, the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML in Dortmund and the University of Bonn. The close integration of basic and application-oriented research builds the ideal foundation for innovation. In this way, we actively shape Germany’s future and contribute to securing the digital sovereignty of our country. Because Machine Learning is the key to intelligent products, new business models and a head start in international competition.
