fortiss research


From fundamental research to marketable prototypes

fortiss has established itself in the world's top research on central topics of Software & Systems Engineering, AI Engineering and IoT Engineering and is considered a recognized partner for demanding questions in software development and Artificial Intelligence.

The institute develops and operates high-performance software with reliable functionality, performance, resilience, persistence, security and maintainability. The special focus is on the integration of model-driven software development with data-driven programming of AI, for the controllable development of a new generation of increasingly autonomous and also decentralized software systems.

Within the three main research areas Software & Systems Engineering, AI Engineering and IoT Engineering, fortiss scientists answer three central questions.

► Software & Systems Engineering
How can software-intensive cyber-physical systems (CPS)/IoT be developed in a controllable manner?

► AI Engineering
How can increasingly autonomous and mission-critical CPS/IoT be controllably developed with learning-based AI components?

► IoT Engineering
How can software platforms for trustworthy, decentralized services be developed as enablers of a new generation of products?
