What does the term artificial intelligence (AI) actually mean? And can a machine replace human skills? Anyone expecting clear answers to these questions should consider reading "Artificial Intelligence – Opportunities for Business and Society in Bavaria", a white paper published by fortiss.
The authors delve into the topic of AI and examine the various fields of application. They outline how leading industrial nations such as the US or Japan, the EU and emerging economic power China are pressing ahead with AI technologies and how the resulting innovations are impacting economic growth. The authors also illustrate which AI strategies successful countries are using, in addition to which activities have unfolded in this area of informatics in Germany, particularly in Bavaria.
The roughly 45-page work concludes with concrete proposals outlining those industries that can profit from AI and which skills industry requires to strengthen the business environment and make advances in society in Bavaria. White paper Nr. 2 (German version) can be downloaded here.
