Das Team von CAIRO befindet sich derzeit im Aufbau.

Die FHWS profiliert sich durch ausgeprägte Internationalisierungsmaßnahmen, unterstützt die Region durch Wissenstransfer, insbesondere durch die Gründung des Center of Artificial Intelligence in Robotics (CAIRO), und legt großen Wert auf hohe Qualitätsstandards. Um den Fokus auf angewandte Forschung zu verstärken, werden vier Professuren (W2) ausgeschrieben. Die Professuren und die Aktivitäten ihrer Inhaberinnen oder Inhaber werden das Herz des Centers sein. Von ihnen wird erwartet, dass sie aktiv Industrieprojekte verfolgen um den Wissenstransfer aus der Hochschule in die Industrie zu ermöglichen. Alle Stellen werden an der Fakultät Informatik und Wirtschaftsinformatik (FIW) in Würzburg verankert sein.

Die bald ausgeschriebenen Stellen werden im Folgenden beschrieben. Außerdem finden Sie Informationen zum Leben und Arbeiten in der Region Mainfranken und zu Professuren an Hochschulen für angewandte Wissenschaften allgemein.

About CAIRO: Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics is a new research center established at the FHWS under the Hightech Agenda Bayern. The objective of the Center is to take up current topics in artificial intelligence and research them for the sake of society while facilitating effective knowledge transfer to the practical domain within various industry sectors. The focus is also on a more holistic understanding of AI – as opposed to isolated individual scenarios, which is the typical practice today. Ethical and legal aspects of AI will play an important role.


About Würzburg: The city of Würzburg is located in Lower Franconia in the northwest of Bavaria and is well-known for its exquisite wines.
