International Open Lab Day

Artificial Intelligence in production

In the manufacturing of the future, autonomous systems will support humans with data-driven analyses and smart solution patterns during value-generating tasks. At the “International Open Lab Day”, guests will have the opportunity to learn all about the benefits offered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) from experts at the two Stuttgart-based Fraunhofer institutes IAO and IPA.

In future, AI will be able to detect optimization potential, make assembly work easier and create staffing schedules: These are just a handful of examples of how AI can contribute to ensuring more resilient and more flexible production processes. However, this does not mean that humans will simply become subservient to algorithms, but shall instead continue to direct processes, working efficiently in an adaptive environment without having to take on so many control tasks.

Would you like to experience the industrial workplace of the future? Then register here to join the “International Open Lab Day” free of charge. The experts from the Fraunhofer IAO and IPA will virtually guide you through the Demonstrator World in the Future Work Lab and show a selection of new AI demonstrators and their concrete benefits for individualized assistance of employees in production.

Future Work Lab

Opened in 2017, the Future Work Lab is Germany’s largest facility exploring the impact of Industrie 4.0 on industrial manufacturing. Occupying 1,000 m2, it offers a firsthand impression of the industry workplaces of the future. Our Demonstrator World showcases more than 50 demonstrators, covering the full range of future industrial work environments and bringing them to life. This is your chance to see for yourself how aspects of digitalization can enhance future workplaces.

The Future Work Lab is open to companies, employees, employee representatives, politicians, researchers and other interested parties. In the period since 2017, we have had more than 13,000 visitors from all over the world.


The event is aimed at
