About the FAU AI MAP

Traditionally, the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg is an exemplary location for Artificial Intelligence (AI), pattern recognition and machine learning. Already in 1975, Prof. Heinrich Niemann established the first chair dealing with AI. His work on pattern recognition yielded fundamental research in the areas of computer vision, speech comprehension and medical imaging. After FAU has raised numerous additional research topics around AI, the Machine Learning and Data Analytics lab was just founded in 2017, supported by a Heisenberg Professorship by the DFG. Based on its extant AI research, FAU has compiled five clusters that are presented in the FAU AI Map. Thereby, this page provides an overview of AI research at FAU, presenting its professors, AI research fields and affiliated industry partners.
