How AI research is creating new luxury in the vehicle.
"Hey Mercedes, drive me to work" - With artificial intelligence (AI), we will interact with our car intuitively in the future. Even small talk will be possible then," says Dr Teresa Botschen. Together with her colleagues in the AI Research Team at Mercedes-Benz, the PhD computer scientist and AI expert is working on making vehicles smarter - for even more comfort and the perfect driving experience. In her interview, she tells us how she bridges the gap between research and the vehicle, and how her team can implement ideas together.
One field that I find particularly exciting is driver-vehicle communication, for example how will we communicate with our vehicles in the future? There is huge potential for AI here.
Dr Teresa Botschen (30) brings the latest AI technologies from science into the car at the Mercedes-Benz Group. Together with her interdisciplinary team, she is driving AI research forward in the Group. The natural language processing expert started her journey with artificial intelligence in the Cognitive Science programme at the University of Tübingen. She completed her Master's degree in Computational Statistics and Machine Learning at University College London, followed by a doctorate in Natural Language Processing at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Besides her research at Mercedes-Benz, she enjoys discovering the world on city trips and mountain tours, singing musical songs in a choir or having fun training her dog.
