Artificial Intelligence

Making machines smarter for improved safety, efficiency and comfort.

Our AI research encompasses advances in computer vision, speech and audio processing, as well as data analytics. Key research themes include improved perception based on machine learning techniques, learning control policies through model-based reinforcement learning, as well as cognition and reasoning based on learned semantic representations. We apply our work to a broad range of automotive and robotics applications , as well as building and home systems.
