AI expert adesso is partnering with appliedAI, the “Initiative for Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI)” in Germany. The objective of the appliedAI initiative is to support German companies in the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and to prepare wider society for the AI age. adesso will be contributing its know-how as an application partner for technology and consulting to the association.
The topic of artificial intelligence ranks first on the agenda at adesso. Through market research on the subject, the IT service provider has regularly been taking stock and offering insights into the state of AI in business and society for years now. adesso consults and supports industrial companies and public administrations on how they can leverage their AI potential and make use of it through economically interesting applications.
That is why head of the appliedAI initiative, Dr Andreas Liebl, sees adesso as a strong new partner in his AI ecosystem: “The appliedAI initiative aims to support Germany as it enters the AI age. To be able to realise this, we need to partner with the best people out there. adesso is an experienced and innovative service provider for large implementation projects and has already successfully highlighted the potential for unique, AI-based applications in numerous projects for various industries. In collaborating together, we will be able to successfully further advance our mission of taking AI in Germany to a new level.”
As a neutral platform, appliedAI supports German industry through knowledge development and exchange based on training and expert sparring, as well as through active engineering projects, in order to increase the level of maturity in AI applications and secure Germany’s international competitiveness. The focus for this undertaking is placed on the development of successful methods and tools for the latest AI technologies and solutions.
To ensure the achievement of these goals, adesso and appliedAI have agreed to work together and make their combined expertise available to interested companies within the initiative.
A multi-faceted package of measures was agreed upon for this purpose. For example, adesso can offer sustained consulting and technology support for the initiative within the scope of an “AI maturity check-up” which appliedAI has developed specifically for industrial companies, thereby strengthening AI innovation capabilities throughout the economy. The partners also want to collaborate on AI development projects and strategy workshops as well as appear together at AI events, when deemed useful. In addition, the expansion and maintenance of the German and international AI network for universities and research institutions is also on the agenda.
Benedikt Bonnmann, Head of the Data & Analytics line of business at adesso, welcomes the broader level of integration: “Due to its complexity, the topic of artificial intelligence thrives on the exchange of best practices and networking. The cooperation with an open, non-profit platform like appliedAI will enrich our activities in the field of AI transformation and can also push discussions surrounding socially relevant topics such as “responsible AI” thanks to a fruitful exchange of perspectives.”
