Through the initiative ‘appliedAI’ of UnternehmerTUM companies, scientists, public institutions and young talents can work together for the first time on the further development of AI systems at the technology hub in Garching. NVIDIA is making its expertise in processor technology available for this purpose. As partners of the initiative, leading companies are already established. These include Allianz, BMW, Giesecke & Devrient, Infineon, Linde, Munich RE, Porsche Consulting, SAP, Siemens and Wacker Chemie. Besides bringing AI to all industries the initiative at UnternehmerTUM offers trainings, online courses, Meetups and workshops for all interested in AI. The development of use cases, for example for autonomous systems in the robotics and automotive industries as well as human-machine interactions, are also planned. ‘We expect up to 3000 participants in the first year’, says Andreas Liebl, Managing Director of the initiative. ‘AI will not be a separate industry, but part of every industry’, said Alex White, NVIDIA’s Vice President of Enterprise Business EMEA. He continues: ‘NVIDIA’s leadership in AI computing will drive appliedAI’s mission to help small and large companies embrace this transformative technology.’ According to a recent McKinsey study, more than 60 percent of all job tasks in Germany alone could be automated by AI systems. ‘They have the potential to increase productivity by up to 1.4 percent annually’, says Andreas Liebl. He continues: ‘We therefore like to share our knowledge with companies and startups who want to work on innovative AI solutions. In cooperation with our partners, we bring in all our know-how and state-of-the-art technologies.’
