UvA and Bosch continue collaboration with new research lab


The University of Amsterdam (UvA) and technology company Bosch will be launching a new research lab together, expanding their existing cooperation as a result.

In 2017, the UvA and Bosch launched the Delta Lab (Deep Learning Technologies Amsterdam) at the Science Park. Here, PhD students and postdocs conduct research into Deep Learning, an important part of artificial intelligence. Specific research is also carried out into the integration of AI in vehicles. 

Delta Lab 2: Bosch makes three million available for AI research

In the meantime, the UvA and Bosch have decided to further expand this collaboration with the opening of a new research lab: Delta Lab 2. The research in this lab will focus on the use of artificial intelligence, security and causality in machine learning and 3D computer vision. Bosch will make three million euros available for this research, at least over the next four years. Delta Lab 2 will be part of ICAI, the national innovation centre for AI at Amsterdam Science Park. The lab will be managed by Dr Jan-Willem van de Meent and Prof. Theo Gevers from the UvA. Dr Eric Nalisnick will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the lab.

Bosch is a technology company with branches worldwide. The company's activities are divided into four business sectors: Mobility Solutions, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods and Energy and Building Technology. Investing in AI research is one of Bosch's top priorities. For example, the company recently invested another 100 million euros in the construction of a new AI campus in the German town of Tübingen. The aim is for all Bosch products to be developed using AI from 2025 onwards.
