Center for Cyber Cognitive Intelligence (ZCCI)


Artificial intelligence for production and machines

In April 2018, the new Center for Cyber Cognitive Intelligence (ZCCI) went into operation at Fraunhofer IPA. This research center utilizes applied research to promote the use of machine learning methods in industrial production processes, transferring knowledge and technologies into practice. The research center mainly assists small and medium-sized enterprises, helping them to test and implement customized, scalable solutions. The ZCCI is part of the new "Mass Personalization" service center on the Stuttgart Technology and Innovation Campus (S-TEC), which is concerned with the transfer of research and technology in the field of "personalized production". The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics, Labor and Housing is funding S-TEC with five million euros.
