Phase 1 – Basic knowledge transfer and AI maturity assessment
Participants in the consortium project develop a common understanding of AI and identify potential AI use cases through the following:
The one-day basic training course establishes a common understanding of artificial intelligence.
AI maturity assessment
The AI maturity of company-specific AI use cases is assessed in individual company workshops: What expertise do I already possess? How mature is my organization with regard to using AI? What does my organization hope to achieve with AI?
On the basis of this information, relevant recommendations are formulated for the following four fields: data, processes, culture/mindset, and IT infrastructure.
Phase 2 – Technology scouting:
At the end of this project phase you will have a comprehensive overview of current and future AI solutions, as well as initial recommendations for your selected use case. This is achieved as follows:
Search for solutions and preliminary assessment
Various solutions are identified for the implementation of the applications found and for the specific challenges faced by the company.
In a subsequent step, these findings form the basis for a structured overview of potential technical solutions, providers, startups, and research institutions.
Phase 3 – Implementation of use cases and intensive AI training
You receive an AI roadmap and acquire the necessary skills for implementation as follows:
Implementation of selected AI applications
Use cases selected by the consortium in Phase 2 are evaluated in detail and implemented (in direct collaboration with the partners if desired). The number of prototype projects will depend on the available overall budget. However, there will also be an option to individually implement additional use cases outside of the project budget.
AI intensive training
This intensive AI training course lasting several days will lead to a deeper understanding of the applications, technologies, and business models. During the course, the partners will use the “AI Navigator” to develop the necessary skills to deploy AI in their own company.
