Empirical study on AI use in production (AI readiness)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is considered one of the key technologies for the entire economy and has attracted increasing attention in various sectors. In manufacturing, the integration of AI into production processes promises to increase productivity, efficiency and automation. However, the actual diffusion of AI in industrial enterprises is still uncertain at this stage.
This is where the project “AI Readiness” comes in: with the help of the development of AI Readiness, the dissemination of AI in the manufacturing industry is specifically analysed.
On the basis of representative operational data on the use of AI technologies in the industrial enterprises of Baden-Württemberg and Germany, the actual AI readiness can thus be determined, comparisons can be made and essential patterns can be analysed.
The results provide essential fields of action and options for stakeholders from politics and industry regarding to the key topic of AI in production.
