Cooperation and contact

What does the Fraunhofer IMS offer besides AIfES?

We at Fraunhofer IMS have been involved in the development of microelectronic circuits, electronic systems and sensors for more than 30 years. We have therefore been able to gain a lot of experience in signal processing. Exactly this experience is important for data preprocessing and feature extraction. No lightweight neural network can be developed without a reduction and interpretation of the measured values.

Our demonstrator for handwriting recognition shows what is possible by preprocessing the data. Within the scope of a project, we can of course also customize AIfES to your individual needs, since all algorithms have been implemented ourselves and are thus fully customizable.

Funding opportunities

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft helps its customers to make full use of all possibilities for project funding. Many years of experience in applying for funding from the European Union, the German Federal Ministry of Education, Research and Technology (BMBF) or other funding agencies support the customer in questions of financing research projects.
