The IAD’s “Robot leads!“ wins university competition


Show your research! This is the motto, of the annual university competition, which is tendered by the initiative “Wissenschaft im Dialog“ and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung). This year’s competition focuses on the theme of the science year, “Working Worlds of the Future”. The IAD team, consisting of Pia Bettenbühl and Verena Steidel, was able to convince the jury with their project idea “Robot leads!”, which covers the subject of robots as managers. At which workplaces could robots possibly be managers? What does leadership mean in this context? And what kind of robot is suitable as a manager? The implementation, which is awarded with 10,000 euros, has started now and can be observed here
