Innovators from industry and research in Saxony already possess a great deal of know-how and specialist knowledge in many domains of artificial intelligence (AI). Nevertheless, this field still holds numerous new opportunities and challenges for Saxony as a business hub. The project “Artificial Intelligence – Expertise and Innovation Potential in Saxony” (KIKiS) was launched with the aim of fully exploiting the innovation potential in this area while boosting the competitiveness of companies and fostering connections between them. The project goals include identifying potential and strengths, pooling individual activities, and developing recommendations for action.
Who is involved in the project?
Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and Dresden University of Technology are assessing needs and requirements for the development and deployment of AI in companies, with support from Saxony’s State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labor and Transport. A key element of the project consists in identifying ways to make the transfer of technological knowledge and provision of existing technologies to companies quick and effective.
