Minister of Technology and Industry László Palkovics stressed that the institute has half a century of experience in the field of artificial intelligence solutions.
He added that the solutions and potential AI applications presented at SZTAKI cover a very wide range of areas, including manufacturing, healthcare, transport and logistics. These sectors feature prominently in the AI Strategy 2020, and the new site is aligned with this.
The minister stressed that the Innovation and Demonstration Space can make a substantial and practical contribution to facilitating the transfer of advanced technologies and to researcher-applicator cooperation.
According to László Monostori, director of SZTAKI, the Innovation and Demonstration Space will provide students and industry with the latest machinery, methods and innovations.
The site will cover three themes: the developments from the National Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence (MILAB) as well as from the National Laboratory of Autonomous Systems (ARNL), and research related to the Industry 4.0 Center of Excellence.
At the opening of the demonstration area, which covers more than 400 square meters, researchers showed almost 20 technologies, including artificial intelligence systems, autonomous vehicles, drone research, advanced robotics research and a portrait-drawing robot.
