Artificial Intelligence in Industry
The technical industry is in a dynamic state. The Dutch industry is in the midst of a digitisation transformation that offers many new opportunities, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a vital role - both in the field of applications and in business models. The technology industry as a whole must succeed in this transformation as technology is necessary to meet a number of the significant societal challenges we face now, such as energy, environment, climate, care and safety.
The Netherlands AI Coalition works closely with the Smart Industry programme and aims to make the Netherlands the best, most flexible and digitally integrated production network in Europe. The programme offers excellent opportunities to promote the application of AI in the Dutch industry and to make better use of the prospects of the data generated by the industry itself.
The working group is functioning on a programme that focuses, among other things, on AI applications in industry that are directly usable, and on a smart academy, where people are central, focused on life-long development, and accessibility of industrial data.
AI in German industry
Germany is a world-renowned business and manufacturing location and since at Hanover Fair 2011 the term Industrie 4.0 was introduced, Germany is the world’s leading Industrie 4.0 nation. Germany has been intensely focused on progress toward smart manufacturing through automation, data exchange and artificial intelligence (AI). But intelligent production is a global development and that is why the country is seeking for cooperation with international partners to develop interoperable standards, IT security measures and a level global playing field for the digital platform economy.
