A visit to Volkswagen's AI experts: "Machines that can think are only for the movies"

A visit to Volkswagen's AI experts: "Machines that can think are only for the movies"
  • The Group IT Data Lab is the Volkswagen Group competence center for machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analysis and quantum computing
  • International expert team forges ahead with machine learning
  • Self-learning algorithms can help people in many areas: production and logistics processes, smart human-robot cooperation, IT security and digital mobility services

 

Can computers or robots think? Could they have a consciousness? When specialists from the Volkswagen Group IT Data Lab talk about their work, they often hear questions like this. Here, at the Data Lab, an international team is working on the development of self-learning programs. In future, their development work could provide better support for their colleagues at the office and factory in many corporate processes. However, one thing is important for the Volkswagen specialists: if you are looking for machines that can think, you will find them in Hollywood rather than in the Data Lab.
