It's what made Marty McFly the envy of all kids in the 80s - and one of the most iconic sci-fi gadgets ever: the hoverboard. Sam Rogers always wanted to fly on such a board, too. In this episode of From KNOW-HOW to WOW, Sam shares how he made his dream come true. But while he wore a jet suit when "hoverboarding," experts at Bosch are now making hovering platforms levitate with the help of AI: "It is not more than controlling all six degrees of freedom," says Bosch expert Joachim Frangen. The intelligent combination of human knowledge and AI capabilities enables new products like Planatix. That's what Joachim calls his invention. But: since machines have learned to think for themselves, AI research must ensure that humans remain in control. That's why Melena and Geoff also talk to Zico Kolter, chief scientist of AI research at the Bosch center for artificial intelligence. He explains why Bosch AI is safe, robust and explainable.
