Artificial Intelligence: Continental And DFKI Enter Into Close Collaboration

  • Continental expands its AI network through a collaboration with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence
  • Technology company benefits at all levels, for example, in knowledge management, material flow, and software and product development
  • AI-based software and machine learning enable the future of automated and autonomous driving

The technology company Continental and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) have agreed to enter into a partnership. DFKI, which is spread over several locations, is the world’s largest non-profit organization for researching artificial intelligence (AI). The collaboration will focus on the mobility of the future and on improving internal processes. “The collaboration with DFKI is part of our strategy to strengthen Continental as a technology company by using artificial intelligence at all levels. Continental will become an ‘AI-empowered company’,” says Kurt Lehmann, corporate technology officer at Continental, to mark the signing of the contract. “AI should support our employees in their work and provide them with new tools.” Furthermore, AI is the central pillar of mobility in the future. “We are now working on the assumption that autonomous driving will not be possible without artificial-intelligence technologies,” underlines Lehmann.
