The research in our group under supervision of Prof. Elgar Fleisch is driven by the strong desire to conquer the grand challenges of our society, such as in mobility, healthcare or sustainability. For this purpose, we draw upon recent advances in applied machine learning, deep learning and statistical modeling in order to gain actionable insights. Different from a PhD in pure computer science, we tailor advanced analytics to the specific requirements of the application.

The Bosch IoT Lab is a cooperation of Robert Bosch GmbH, University of St. Gallen (HSG) and ETH Zurich. The lab is part of one of the leading Internet of Things (IoT) research networks. We are exploring the IoT in domains such as Mobility, Industry, Energy and Health, from both a technology and a business perspective. Our work aims to be rigorous – with impact in the related scientific communities – and relevant for Bosch.
