AI research project of Technische Universität Ilmenau with IMMS and the city of Ilmenau
TU Ilmenau receives 3.3 million euros from the federal state of Thuringia

On July 26, 2021, Carsten Feller, State Secretary in the Thuringian Ministry of Economics, Science and Digital Society, presented Technische Universität Ilmenau with a funding decision for a good 3.3 million euros for the three-year "thurAI" project. The project consists of twelve specific individual projects aimed at putting artificial intelligence methods into practice in business and society. The state is funding forward-looking research and development projects in Thuringia's research institutions and companies through the "Innovation Potentials Package of Measures."

In the Smart City area, scientists from TU Ilmenau and IMMS are working with the city of Ilmenau to develop intelligent digital solutions for the efficiency, citizen-friendliness and sustainability of modern communities. In addition, selected AI methods are tested in practice in Thuringian companies in a Living Lab and the research results are demonstrated to the public.
