Thematic Field 1: Technology for Precision Medicine
Our mission is to transform the provision of health and care by development and use of
- humanoid and companion robots
- digital twins for individualized simulations
- devices such as voice activated assistants
- tailored technology such as novel accelerators and precision manufacturing
to provide widely available, affordable technologies designed to meet the needs of populations today and tomorrow.
We build and use technology to interact with and respond to people, adapting to their behavior, emotions and needs to optimally support their health and wellbeing. Precision medicine requires tailored solutions that can only scale through robust, automated technical workflows.
We leverage enabling technologies to achieve these ambitious goals:
- artificial intelligence and machine learning
- simulation technology
- manufacturing technology
- tailored human machine interfaces
We investigate the development and use of humanoid and companion robots, digital twins and devices, such as voice activated assistants, to transform the provision of health and care, from ambient assisted living and health monitoring to cognitive training and social engagement.Link
Research groups at KIT research and develop systems and methods for automated and intelligent surgical assistance and for future autonomous interventions.Link
Research groups at KIT develop and maintain multiple software packages for modeling and simulation of biomedical processes. The perfectly controlled environment of these engineering tools generates added value for example when used to build digital twins, which are personalized computational models of an individual person.Link
