Current developments reveal the impressive potential: AI can offer significant added value and efficiency gains for companies of all kinds - but only if it is used correctly.

The term artificial intelligence (AI) is divided into weak and strong AI. According to the current scientific consensus, strong AI does not yet exist. Thus, when AI is currently mentioned, weak AI is always meant. Weak AI is used to solve concrete application problems and to fulfill clearly defined tasks.

In doing so, it can achieve outstanding cognitive abilities and learning speeds that may even exceed human capabilities. However, it always remains fixed on the mathematical solution path of defined problems that has been trained for it.

Bring in expertise through process consulting at an early stage

The potential of weak AI is now being exploited extensively across all sectors and industries. When used correctly, it offers significant added value for companies, as impressive recent examples show:

The Darvis Rapid Hygiene Check enables a DSGVO-compliant check of the correct wearing of protective equipment and thus offers a significant contribution to improving hygiene standards (e.g. in hospitals). At the Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), an award-winning system has been developed that uses AI to support medical professionals during brain surgery and reduce the error rate. At a Swabian packaging company, an AI-based process immediately detects anomalies in the manufacturing process of plastic parts, leading to significant reductions in error costs.

For the introduction of AI to be successful, numerous important questions must be answered in detail in advance – and absolutely before installation begins. Therefore, a successful AI project requires much more than just technology knowledge – the introduction is especially a process issue! Since we are a competent partner in the areas of digitization & process optimization, we can optimally help in the process-related implementation, because we bring together the necessary expertise from both subject areas.
