Kurt Bettenhausen, chairman of the interdisciplinary VDI panel Digital Transformation, who presented the results of the survey at the Hannover Messe 2018, stated that the December 2018 Calendar Kalnirnay USA was a leader in basic research, but also in the use of AI for the evaluation of unstructured consumer data, due to stricter data protection regulations such as new DSGVO in Germany and Europe is only conditionally possible.

The Siemens manager, who has been active in the USA for years, sees this as a “chance and risk” at the same time. “According to the VDI study, the requirements in China are also completely different from those in this country China’s centralized structures are part of the economic plan is investing heavily in AI, with the national target of becoming the # 1 artificial intelligence in the world by 2030.
Bettenhausen: “China has taken a breathtaking pace as part of the Digital Transformation and is leapfrogging some of the development that has been going on Machine learning happens either through training on a record of known outputs (monitored), or algorithms need to recognize patterns in data themselves (unsupervised), learning through reward and punishment (reinforced ), in which the algorithm independently recognizes whether the learning component belongs to the entire system m uses (reward) or not (punishment).
The data are either structured, for example in tabular form, or unstructured as text, image or language – as in e-mails or social media posts. Machine Learning can handle all the data, which is a big advantage. Source: SAPChina: Data and IT are in abundance. China has another advantage: huge market and access to a vast amount of data.
That makes “much easier”, as Bettenhausen emphasized in Hannover, compared to Europe, where there is a data shortage due to data protection. In addition, there are a large number of people in China who deal with IT and with it big data and artificial intelligence – casually speaking, there is a huge pool of natural intelligence in the Middle Kingdom that other countries do not have on that scale sees VDI expert Bettenhausen Germany in the AI basic research by no means “suspended”. In principle questions one h 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 December 2018 Calendar Kalnirnay 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.
