Science of Intelligence

What are the principles of intelligence, shared by all forms of intelligence, no matter whether artificial or biological, whether robot, computer program, human, or animal? And how can we apply these principles to create intelligent technology? Answering these questions - in an ethically responsible way - is the central scientific objective of the Cluster Science of Intelligence (SCIoI).


Intelligence research is fundamental science but has and will continue to have an immediate impact on industry and society. Hence, it is our responsibility to transfer our knowledge by public engagement and mutually beneficial collaborations with companies.


To reveal the principles of intelligence is a long term goal. Therefore, the cluster is devoted to the training of the next generation of intelligence researchers. This next generation of researchers will be “natives” in our Science of Intelligence and will ensure a deep and lasting integration of the disciplines.
