The cognitive Internet of Things (IoT), a combination of Machine Learning and the existing status quo of networked devices, promises an exciting technological future. In the Fraunhofer-Cluster Cognitive Internet Technologies (CIT), 13 Fraunhofer Institutes are jointly researching cognitive technologies and the industrial Internet. The long-term goal is to build a new Internet for industry by researching cognitive technologies - from sensors, intelligent learning processes in data processing up to the cloud.
The progressing digitalization makes it clear: the mere orientation towards classical web-based, digital processes does not go far enough. Competitive applications, products and services require the trustworthy use of the diverse sensor data of the Internet of Things, their cross-company semantic integration and the provision of intelligent, learning services in order to create a »Cognitive Internet«.
The research is divided into three centers:
- »Fraunhofer Data Spaces«
- »Machine Learning«
The cluster brings together these three fields of technology to bridge the gap between physical, digital and social worlds. Cognitive Internet technologies are the key to digital sovereignty and economic competitiveness.
