On the occasion of the Handelsblatt Conference “Artificial Intelligence”, Association President Jörg Bienert, founder and board member of the Cologne-based deep learning company aiso-lab, presented December 2018 Calendar Editable the association’s goals. In particular, the association’s work should, according to the will of the (founding) members, contribute to the fact that politics and society are “not .

This country is even quite well positioned. However, the still inadequate digital penetration of production prevents the use of AI technologies on a larger scale. The statement “We lack the prerequisites for digitally networked production (Industry 4.0) in order to use AI technologies efficiently.” In the VDI survey around two-thirds of the surveyed members agreed or “rather” agreed. Only 13.9 percent felt differently and expressed the opinion that their company was sufficiently prepared for the “fourth industrial revolution”.
“We did not expect that to happen in this way”, emphasized Bettenhausen at the press conference at the Hannover Messe 2018. To make matters worse, there was often a lack of the skills required for the beneficial use of AI methods. Professionals who are proficient in KI methods are scarcely available in the companies and hardly available on the job market. Consequently, the practical use of artificial intelligence in German industry is still in its infancy.
The majority of companies (just under 60 percent) currently uses AI only for data analysis. Only a small group of companies succeed, as a study by Accenture shows, using artificial intelligence in their own core business and reinventing existing products using AI or even offering new, AI-based products on the market. This KI Aventgarde involves intelligent technologies and Human creativity interacting with analytics and deep industry expertise so tightly that they deliver measurable results today.
While 98 percent of all companies surveyed by Accenture have already added individual KI applications to their existing portfolio, only one in six (16 percent) has a holistic vision of how to use this technology more creative use of AI was led by Accenture’s (population) respondents: poor data quality as the biggest problem (51 percent), concerns over data and IT security (45 percent), the difficult balance between buying standardized AI solutions and the development of their own individual solutions (45 percent), legal uncertainties in the disclosure of data and the protection of intellectual property (40 percent). Especially with German companies, the pros and cons of own vs. “Purchased” AI solutions in the first place (54 percent);
However, security concerns were only 38 percent in Germany and less than one-third unclear data and intellectual property issues were the most pressing problem in the context of AI (31 percent). “The reinvention of industrially manufactured products by KI is still in its infancy and the road to success is anything but easy, “comments Eric Schaeffer, Senior Managing Director at Accenture.
“However, the achievements of the KI pioneers demonstrated in our study clearly show that this is feasible and that the business benefits of AI in the industrial sector are very high.” Federal Government presents key AI pointsSo the German policy also sees that To stand up for the competition and be in the forefront, “said December 2018 Calendar Editable German Chancellor Angela Merkel in her opening speech on the occasion of the Hannover Messe 2018. The announcements now seem to be followed by deeds.
