Bridging the gap between academic research and at-scale development

Currently, there is a significant gap between specialized academic research on deep learning and the at-scale application of these concepts to solving real problems. At Merantix, our goal is to aggregate concepts and technical research and use them to create scalable and relevant deep-learning solutions. In order to reach these goals, our team is closely connected to researchers at major academic institutions, with whom we collaborate on various topics. We recognize the importance of bringing groundbreaking research on deep learning to life and we strive to realize with our constantly evolving products and solutions.

Applied Research Topics

Reinforcement Learning

How software agents ought to take actions in an environment so as to maximize a suitable notion of cumulative reward.

Bayesian Deep Learning

Provides a deep learning framework which can also model uncertainty. BDL can achieve state-of-the-art results, while also understanding uncertainty.

Introspective Analysis of Neural Networks

Debugging neural networks can be challenging, even for experts. With millions of parameters involved, even one small change can cause errors. At Merantix, we develop methods to visualize neural nets to make this process smoother.

Continuous Learning

Learning continuously and adaptively about the external world and enabling the autonomous, incremental development of ever more complex skills and knowledge.

Neural Network Compression

Compression of deep neural networks for memory-efficient, compact feature representations becomes a critical problem when these networks are deployed on resource-limited platforms.

Label Noise

Well-annotated datasets can be prohibitively expensive and time-consuming to collect. Our research explores the usage of larger albeit noisier datasets that can be more easily obtained.

Modularization of ML Pipelines

Our team is experimenting with the modularization of machine-learning pipelines in order to achieve maximum efficiency throughout complex processes.

Improving Experimentation Cycles

Experimentation is a crucial part of our work at Merantix. We are constantly improving experimentation cycles to be able to run more and more experiments.

Initiator and Member of

Horizon 2020 (biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever)

Research Member of SECREDAS Project

Merantix was selected by the European Commission to take part in a Horizon 2020 project on Cyber Security for Cross Domain Reliable Dependable Automated Systems (SECREDAS). Within SECREDAS Meratnix is a core contributor developing robust and secure image segmentation algorithms, that function reliably in corner-case situations as well as when faced with real-world adversarial attacks. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness. Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.

VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry)

Member of the VDA Lead Initiative for Safeguarding Autonomous Vehicles

Merantix is a member of the VDA Lead Initiative on safeguarding autonomous vehicles, which aims to build both technology and industry standards to enable the scaled development and deployment of autonomous systems. The German federal government of has set the goal of ensuring Germany’s pioneering role in self-driving technology. Working closely with all major German OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, Merantix is contributing to make detection and segmentation algorithms robust. Furthermore we are collaborating to develop semantics and standards for safe autonomous vehicles as well as concepts for scalable testing environments.

KI BUNDESVERBAND E.V. (German Federal Association for Artificial Intelligence)

Founding Member

KI Bundesverband e.V. is the first German federal association for the field of artificial intelligence. Merantix is a founding member and several Merantix employees actively contribute to the association. Merantix CTO Rasmus Rothe, Ph.D., is a member of the board. The association is made up of more than 160 innovative companies, SMEs, startups and experts, for which the development and application of technologies based on AI is a central business purpose. The aim of the association is not only to act as a voice of the members towards politics, it also offers access and opinion leadership with regards to needs, parameters and requirements of cooperation projects in the field of AI.
