kempelen

Who was Kempelen?

Wolfgang von Kempelen (1743 – 1804) was born in Bratislava. He was an important polyhistor, polyglot, inventor, artist, playwright but also an illusionist. Today we would say that he was a great innovator. Some of his best-known inventions can be described as a breakthrough in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence: a chess machine and a speaking machine. He is also referred to as Bratislava’s Da Vinci.

We want to contribute to a better future

By supporting talented students, BrAIn aims to advance the knowledge transfer in the field of computer science and intelligent technologies with connections to the social sciences and humanities.
We believe that multidisciplinarity is a necessary part of ensuring that AI is developed in a manner that benefits everyone.
