munich_i—why a new high-tech platform?

Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are on the verge of a technological quantum leap. How can we use AI and robotics to make our everyday lives and work easier, safer and more productive in the future? Does embodied AI have the potential to optimize or even revolutionize assembly and production through applications at the interface between adaptive algorithms and machines? How can we use AI and robotics today to meet the great challenges in the areas of healthcare, mobility, work and environment? munich_i provides answers to these and other questions.

The innovative high-tech platform that digitally premiered at automatica sprint 2021 will be held as an in-person event for the first time in 2022. Participate and learn more about groundbreaking innovations and pioneering developments and meet the world's leading visionaries and masterminds from the field of AI and robotics. With the newly created platform by automatica, Messe München and the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), we are providing a valuable contribution to this key technology gaining a foothold in society and industry. Our mission: driving forward responsible technological change that puts people at the center of future thoughts and actions. munich_i is under the patronage of the Bavarian Minister-President Dr. Markus Söder.

Under the theme of intelligence empowering tomorrow, the newly created high-tech format offers a platform for the ideas of the most acclaimed and promising pioneers while promoting knowledge transfer and collaboration. It is a place of great networking opportunities for innovation drivers from science, business, politics and society. Because solving the complex challenges of the future requires joint initiatives and cooperation!

“Modern science needs networking. Scientists and research organizations benefit from continuous exchange of technology, expertise and education. Furthermore, cooperation with companies can lead to the implementation of their findings and achievements. This process (of mutual learning and supporting each other) is indispensable for the further development of our society.”
– Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sami Haddadin, Director of MIRMI and holder of the Chair for Robotics and System Intelligence, founder of FRANKA EMIKA GmbH, Director munich_i

Brilliant ideas become concrete solutions.

Many innovations and solutions for the challenges of tomorrow are already available. In many cases, the missing link is a well thought-out and matching ecosystem for their integration into the global economy. Key technologies such as AI and robotics call for an even stronger cooperation between all relevant market players and institutions already putting great efforts into shaping the next stage of development: the digital transformation of both economy and society.

munich_i does not present any visions or theories that might someday become a reality. Instead, it promotes solutions for clearly defined missions and lighthouse projects. We are committed to a new culture of innovation based on open and interdisciplinary dialog. We want to connect international visionaries through joint umbrella projects. The values that guide us are candidness, diversity and pioneering spirit. We only see progress in developments that benefit people.

Manifesto: What drives us

Decision-makers meet masterminds.

Our high-tech platform provides valuable impetus and reliable orientation. It is tailored to the requirements of corporate decision-makers and managers responsible for production, research and development, technology and digital transformation. munich_i shows which technologies will become relevant in the future, which industry standards will prevail and what corporate leaders need to change in their individual roadmap. So that the right decisions for tomorrow can be made today.

At munich_i, policymakers find technology-based responses to some of society's most pressing challenges. We show how and under what framework conditions the upcoming challenges can be solved using high-tech. To this end, munich_i provides the global tech elite with a community of like-minded people to exchange ideas, network and get inspired at eye level. Those looking to join the debate on the most important future topics will be there from June 21 to 24.

The program for the future.
