First International Summer School on Applied Artificial Intelligence in Robotics

Dear all,

Register for the first international summer school on Applied Artificial Intelligence in Robotics held in Karlsruhe (Germany) from August 12th to 16th.

Karlsruhe is a wonderful German city and a hotspot for AI and robotics! See our robotics YouTube channel to get an impression what we do: FZI Service Robotics YouTube Channel

The FZI Living Lab Service Robotics will give you the chance to really use new AI technologies and get a week of hands-on experience with interesting robotic platforms.

The event will be organized as a set of small, focused teams (2-3) to solve the challenges of a robotic mission:

Whether it be a search-and-recover application on our mobile Husky platform, a robot team with our drones or force-based assembly with a UR robot.

Our team of experts will introduce you to the different facets of applied artificial intelligence and support you in the realization.


Our international summer school will take place at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, our organizing partner for the location.

This fantastic, inspiring location brings together art and media in the center of the city.


We offer a limited number of 18 places to our summer school.

The summer school aims at boosting experience for current master students, PhD students and Post-Docs in the domains of robotics, machine learning or similar fields of research.
