Embodied Intelligence - The Next Big Thing
Together with Siemens, the Deutschen Dialog Institut (DDI) and dem Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM), we are conducting a study on future growth markets based on Embodied Intelligence (EI). We derive current developments, patterns and trends - in different areas (technology, competition, value creation and living spaces) and reflect these with the "approach" and "action" of the so-called Digital companies. What is EI? An highly integrated object or a system that can interact with the environment with sensors and actuators, recognizes problems autonomously and works autonomously to solve them and, if necessary, utilizes aids in the form of tools, services, resources, infrastructures etc. We argue that Embodied Intelligence is emerging as a new user or user in our economic system as a consumer of services, applications and information alongside humans. These and other theses, will be evaluated with the help of worldwide conducted interviews with experts of the relevant topics. With this background, we want to deduce concrete recommendations for action for business, science and politics and thus show opportunities for the transformation of their business to participate in this future market.
