Continental and University of Oxford collaborate on AI research

LinkedIn +

Continental and the University of Oxford, UK are conducting joint research in the field of artificial intelligence. The partnership will focus on the possible uses and development of artificial intelligence algorithms, which have the potential to enhance future mobility. These deep-learning algorithms could enable highly-reliable visual object detection and human-machine dialogue.

Continental expects the partnership to yield findings on the use of AI methods, including in the areas of automated and autonomous driving, the improvement of future vehicle access systems, accident minimization through intelligent warning systems, and the sensitive dialog that will take place in the future between drivers and vehicles – between humans and their machines.

The first phase of the three-year partnership includes new postdoctoral research positions at Oxford. There are plans to extend the research scope and the time frame at a later date.
