Getting started in artificial intelligence isn't that hard....

July 12, 2023

However, .... poses some challenges for companies.

To provide orientation, we summarize here 6 relevant points and important questions that companies need to ask themselves in the context of AI and innovation, together:


1. define your goals

Start by identifying the specific challenges you want to solve or opportunities you want to pursue. AI, no matter how good, is worth nothing if you don't know where you're starting from, what you're aiming for, and how you're going to measure success.

  • Are you concerned with Innovation process . accelerate?
  • Do you want creative Potentials open up?
  • Shall your Decision making in innovation improves become?
  • Do you want new Business models build?
  • Do you want to use AI to create concepts faster and more cost effective test?


2. secure access to AI experts AI requires specialized skills, such as data science, machine learning, and programming. Depending on your resources and needs, you may need to tap into new internal or external sources to build the expertise you need.

Resources to be tapped quickly currently lie in external AI experts and consultants.

  • How can you find them? Rich Employees from freelance platforms or should you longer-term Partnershipse.g. with universities?

5. start small and expand Start with a small, targeted project that demonstrates the value of AI to your business. Once the results are in, communicate the benefits and gradually expand the use of AI to other areas of the business. In doing so, we believe it is imperative to link the capabilities of AI with "traditional" capabilities.

  • How can your AI Pilot project help explore the technical possibilities of AI?
  • With your first project, how can you make AI accessible to all employees in the Making the process "tangible?
  • Instead of developing everything from scratch: which Existing tools and platforms can Use them to accelerate the development? Where can you . Known Buildto counteract reservations?
