Germany’s leading AI institutions have joined forces in the new AI4Germany initiative in order to promote the local economy in the application of AI and thus make Germany fit for the challenges of digitalization. Together with AI.HAMBURG and Artificial Intelligence Center Hamburg, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and the Smart Systems Hub in Dresden as well as KI.NRW/Fraunhofer IAIS in Sankt Augustin near Bonn, appliedAI will actively support companies in all regions of Germany in the application of artificial intelligence within the new initiative AI4Germany. Through AI4Germany, local companies can be supported better and faster in the application of AI  in their regions. By the regional spread of the partners a network was created, which guarantees the supported enterprises proximity to one of the six network partners. In order to promote the knowledge of AI in companies – in particular medium-sized businesses – the experts of AI4Germany work together on the further development of workshops, trainings or application examples. The cooperation is intended to strengthen Germany’s role as an important high-tech location. Pooling the forces of all partners will help Germany not to fall further behind the superpowers USA and China. In addition to employee training and workshops, the initiative aims to develop an overview of concrete AI application examples in companies, promote networking with innovative start-ups and AI experts, and support companies in the implementation of AI projects by providing infrastructure.
