Project Work


Künstliche Intelligenz zur dynamischen Optimierung des Netzwerkmanagements
KITOS develops concepts for the management of TSN-based networks supported by artificial intelligence (AI).
In the project, the consortium partners develop AI algorithms that give networks the necessary dynamics and reliability for industry 4.0 scenarios and allow users to use them easily and without in-depth network or AI knowledge. Intelligent tools support decision making, allow more efficient use of resources and enable higher performance configurations. For active operation, the network management is secured against failures with AI-supported error detection and adaptation mechanisms.
