The goal of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems is to investigate and understand the organizing principles of intelligent systems and the underlying perception-action-learning loop. The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems combines — within one center — theory, software, and hardware expertise in the research field of intelligent systems. With funding from a 2017 Digital Impact grant, the Institute is developing Fairensics, an online library that collects and makes available advanced tools developed by researchers and private industry for counteracting bias in algorithms.
The Tübingen campus of the institute focuses on theory and algorithms as well as human-scale systems covering topics such as machine learning, computer vision, robotics, control, and the theory of intelligence. Research at the Stuttgart campus of the institute covers small-scale robotics, self-organization, haptic perception, bio-inspired systems, medical robotics, and physical intelligence; that is, the embodiment of intelligent behavior in physical, rather than computational, systems.
