Experts say artificial intelligence (AI) can add tremendous value, but automakers should, in particular, look at production and logistics. In these areas, they say, efficiency boosts and cost savings can be realized in a relatively short period of time. A new McKinsey study calls AI a future value-adding machine for the auto industry. By 2025, Read More..
The German Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is to partner with Continental and establish a joint research lab at the DFKI facility in Kaiserslautern. Here, Continental employees will look at specific issues such as AI-supported methods of data analysis and software development. A statement describes this as research “in the ecosystem of DFKI labs”. “The Read More..
