The munich_i Hightech Summit begins

munich_i summit, June 28, 2023, Hall B4 at Messe München: These are important coordinates for anyone with a keen interest in the future of robotics and AI – be it in science, ethics, or application environments. Here, the world's leading experts present concepts, examples, and ethical guidelines for interaction between human and artificial intelligence. The keynote speaker is Dr. Norbert Gaus, Executive Vice President Siemens Technology, Head of Research & Pre-Development.

Digital twins control fully autonomous factories: This is Dr. Norbert Gaus’ vision. In his role as Executive Vice President Siemens Technology, Head of Research & Pre-Development, he and his teams work on making this vision a reality. The combination of robotics and artificial intelligence already enables flexible autonomous processes in current production and logistics use cases.

When digital twins control autonomous factories

"Robotics, the Digital Twin and AI – Enabling the autonomous factory."

The field of industrial manufacturing is in the center of the digital transformation. Rapid technical developments coincide with global events impacting the way we develop and produce. Increasing flexibility and resilience demands for our supply chains require new ways of collaborating across the various parts of the value creation network. Recent developments in robotics and AI allow us to picture hyper-flexible production systems and autonomous factories to address these challenges and create a sustainable manufacturing landscape that produces on demand and close to consumption. The talk will show how industry ensures the availability of high-quality data as the basis of end-to-end digital manufacturing processes. Examples demonstrate how Digital Twins and advanced algorithms can be used to automate the automation and compute complete autonomous manufacturing processes instead of engineering them manually. Finally, the talk will show use cases that leverage the combination of robotics and AI for flexible, autonomous processes in manufacturing and logistics.

Dr. Norbert Gaus, Executive Vice President at Siemens Technology, is responsible for Research & Pre-Development at Siemens. After earning a degree in electrical engineering from Technical University Munich, he worked initially as a research assistant at the German Aerospace Center. During that time he earned a Ph.D. in engineering from Ruhr University Bochum. He joined Siemens AG Technology in 1991. Between 1994 and 2001, Gaus held various positions in the Information and Communication Networks Group with the rank of Vice President. In the following four years, he served as President and CEO of Siemens Corporate Research Inc., Princeton, NJ, USA. From 2005 to when he assumed his current position, he held various executive positions in Siemens Healthcare, ultimately as CEO of the Customer Solutions Division (Sales and Service for Siemens Healthcare, HIS Business Unit) of Siemens Healthcare. Since May 2015 he is in his current position at Siemens Technology.
