Multidisciplinary

CeTI’s central vision is to enable humans to interact in quasi real-time with cyber-physical systems (CPS) in the real or virtual world over intelligent wide-area communication networks. Such advances go far beyond the current state-of-the-art approaches in computer and engineering sciences: intelligent communication networks and adaptive CPS for quasi real-time co-operations with humans require online mutual learning mechanisms, which are crucial challenges.

To tackle these challenges, CeTI will conduct unique interdisciplinary research and will address major open research topics in key areas of the complexity of human control in the human–machine loop, sensor and actuator technologies, software and hardware designs, and the communication networks as the basis for several novel use cases grouped in medicine, industry, and the Internet of Skills.

Meet the robots

When: March 24 to 25, 2023
Where: Airport Dresden

Over two days, regional and national companies, universities and institutions will present robots to marvel at and touch. Experience up close which technologies, applications and solutions the field of robotics and automation in Saxony has to offer.

The special feature: For the first time, the trade fair and family offers are deliberately combined!

The FIRST LEGO League finals will be a crowd-puller: an international competition in which young people compete on a large stage in gripping RobotGames for the title of champion in 2023. Exciting RobotGames attract technology enthusiasts as well as families with a desire for colorful activities and a lively atmosphere. But that’s not all! On 2,000 m², sponsors, developers and users offer opportunities to get to know each other and network. Both trade visitors and families with children and young people – the young professionals of tomorrow and beyond – will meet representatives from business and research at the exhibition booths and in workshops. Further training courses will also be offered for teachers and multipliers in the field of education. Non-school educational institutions and numerous exhibitors will present themselves on a huge exhibition and event area. Numerous hands-on activities await visitors young and old!

The event is free of charge on both days.

Junior Doktor

When: April 18 2023
Where: Georg-Schumann-Straße 9

Artificial intelligence can already do almost everything we humans can do: Painting pictures, driving cars, having conversations, etc. but in fact it is also able to exclude people. In this workshop, students will learn what is meant by AI and where it can be used. Afterwards, they will discuss how AI discriminates against other people and how they can take action against this discrimination.

Girls´Day

When: April 27 2023
Where: Georg-Schumann-Straße 9

In two exciting workshops we will take you into the professional cosmos of engineers, psychologists, computer scientists and doctors. All these professions come together at the Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI) and conduct research on exciting digitisation-related projects.

Digitisation is a very topical term, but what does it actually mean? In the first workshop you will learn about the application areas of digitisation with a focus on the medical and leisure sectors. Case studies are used to understand exactly where the opportunities and dangers of digitisation lie. The workshop will also be supported by CeTI’s current research projects.

Today, artificial intelligence can do almost everything we humans can: draw pictures, drive a car, converse and much more. but it is also capable of excluding people. In the second workshop you will learn what is meant by AI and where it can be used. This is followed by a discussion on how AI puts other people at a disadvantage and how this discrimination can be countered.
