AI Essentials for Decision Makers - Navigating the future of Business

HPI and Merantix combine their know-how to enable decision makers to understand the possibilities of Artificial Intelligence, apply it to their own business field and support them in its implementation.

Artificial Intelligence is used in a wide variety of departments in companies in almost every industry. Very often, however, the term is used in a general way without taking into account the different facets of the technology. For example, in addition to machine learning, deep learning and visual computing, experts also include natural language processing and generation, speech recognition, image analysis and robotics in the discipline of “artificial intelligence”. A decade ago, only 12 of the world’s companies were using AI in any form, but the rapid development of computing power has made artificial intelligence almost indispensable in day-to-day business.

The areas of application of AI are diverse: from data analysis of decision-making processes, automation of existing business processes, chatbots, to AI as an essential component of new digital business models, speech processing, or even as a feature of products and services.
