about AI-Beyond

AI-beyond strives to advance modern AI technology to enable automated systems to make rational decisions and optimize their behaviour. Our research is centered around spatial applications like analysing and acquiring sensor data. We optimize mobility tasks with respect to various optimization criteria. As members of the Abby-Net research network, we lay a particular focus on sustainability and actively explore the connection point between modern AI, sustainable mobility, and energy solutions. Thus, we actively support projects monitoring environmental change.
