Does stress in social situations cause a particular posture? Do I move in a different way when I feel under pressure or fear a potential conflict? FAU researchers have been investigating these questions in their research. Using their results, they were able to train machine learning models to distinguish between people who were stressed and those who were not - a first step towards non-invasive methods of measuring stress.

FAU is massively expanding its computing capacities for AI applications. The Erlangen National High-Performance Computing Center is investing millions in AI cluster with cutting-edge processors. The Free State of Bavaria is providing the necessary funds within the context of the High-tech Agenda.

Together with scientists from Canada and the USA, Dr. Achim Schilling and Dr. Patrick Krauss from Uniklinikum Erlangen have discovered a method of modifying artificial nerve cells in such a way that they behave more like the nerve cells in the brain. This could help AI systems save enormous amounts of energy.

An intelligent suit is hoped to significantly improve rehabilitation after a serious spinal cord injury. The AI-supported solution will be developed over the next three years by researchers from FAU working in collaboration with Heidelberg University and Heidelberg University Hospital. It combines electrical simulation of muscles with support for movement using artificial tendons, and reacts to patients’ intended movements.

A team from MPL and FAU has created a new, fast and precise method for clinicians to analyse cells in tissue samples from cancer patients without the need for a trained pathologist. They use artificial intelligence to evaluate the data their method produces.

Over the next three years, researchers at FAU hope to design a wearable device for monitoring the breathing of patients with chronic diseases such as asthma or bronchitis. Methods from artificial intelligence will be used to automatically classify and evaluate data.

An international research team with participants from several universities including the FAU has proposed a standardized registry for artificial intelligence (AI) work in biomedicine to improve the reproducibility of results and create trust in the use of AI algorithms in biomedical research and, in the future, in everyday clinical practice.
