Karsten Roscher

Head of Department »Industrial Sensing Systems«

Karsten Roscher studied computer science and electrical engineering at Ilmenau University of Technology. After graduating, he initially worked at the Fraunhofer Institute for Embedded Systems and Communication Technology ESK in the field of networked mobility with a research focus on reliable real-time communication in highly dynamic networks based on machine learning.

He heads the “Industrial Sensing Systems” department at Fraunhofer IKS, which focuses on AI-based vision for people recognition, quality control and similar applications. The aim of the department is to solve specific challenges in the automation industry with high-performance vision systems.

His research focuses on combining robust learning methods that lead to reliable models even with small amounts of data with runtime monitoring approaches to "teach the AI models to doubt".
