We build AI systems for you - be it a PoC or a full product

AI-Engineering services

Engineering

Technical Proof of Concept development

All technical implementations should start with a "proof of concept" that shows the technical feasibility of the use case. However, a PoC must also validate the potential for return on investment as well as scalability, usability and maintainability. We build a PoC in short sprints for you with the goal of enabling the next step: Engineering a complete AI-Solution.

Engineering

AI Product development

If you grasp AIs potential, you will inevitably rethink your products and change their inner DNA to utilize AI-Technology. We have a lot of experience about what it means to bring an AI-System into production, and it is fiendishly hard. We know about the challenges that are "technical debt" or "user acceptance / UX" and "scalability" and how they are different for AI-Systems. We build these systems for you based on our experience of 35+ implementations so far. For an example of product development see our Village Data Analytics (VIDA) case study, an earth observation and AI-powered custom software.

Engineering

AI-Infrastructure, Pipeline and Lab design

The systems, platforms, and tools we are using to develop AI-Technology, services, and products are maturing slowly. There is no silver bullet that solves these very technical decisions. We help you make sense of them and take a mid-term decision towards your AI-Infrastructure, be it in the “Cloud” or “On-Prem”, your “AI-Pipelines” and “Service-Architecture” and your “AI-Lab” setup.

Being your AI center of excellence

A proven structure to act quickly and autonomously is the AI-Center of Excellence that most companies adopt relatively early. However, it requires the right surrounding and factors to attract the talents, right enablers, roles, and people. appliedAI can bootstrap your AI-Center of Excellence (AI-CoE) and run it for you long-term.

Engineering

AI-Research agenda support

Maturing companies invest in researching core-topics in AI that are relevant to their value proposition. We help you build that agenda and can support you in executing on those research projects. From literature reviews to long-term applied research projects in the domain of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Reach out to us to learn about our applied research focus (e.g. real-world reinforcement learning).

Being at the forefront of AI application means having no one to follow. We know that applying AI is hard because there is no common wisdom yet on how to do it - even if some tell you it isn't hard. This is why we set up appliedAI as an initiative and many companies joined appliedAI already. In addition, this is why we and our whole ecosystem support you individually with what you need. From developing new guidelines for your data strategy to creating AI development tools. Approach us with what you need.

We educate and re-skill your company - from tech to management

AI-Academy services

Academy

AI Introduction course

Artificial Intelligence means very different things to different people and stakeholders. A necessary first step on any AI-journey is to create a common and shared layer of understanding, interpretation, and expectation towards AI-Technology. In this course, we lay the foundation for an AI-Journey by creating a broad, shared perspective on AI and the current technology behind it.

Academy

AI Project Management course

If you implemented an AI system already, you will know this: Managing AI projects is very different from managing classical software development. AI poses its own challenges, on the development team, on the managers, on the company, and on the user. In this course, we teach you the basics of AI project management and introduce you to our battle tested framework ("RAID") for it.

Academy

AI Strategy course

Asking and answering the right questions early on is a primer for success when applying AI. A fundamental first step is getting a clear picture of what an AI strategy consists of, how to create an AI vision and how it relates to the business goals. In this course, we give you a tested and proven methodology for this and deep dive into the specification and implementation of the "Strategy house".

Academy

Comprehensive digital AI Academy programs

AI transforms all areas and units of the company. Just as the internet did. A holistic AI reskilling program is part of a broader AI strategy and adding the elements to it that fit your company is a complex task. We give you the blueprints to do this and develop them further with you to suit your companies needs. We also share the original course content with you and your employees to get you ready to take the next steps in adopting AI in your company.

Academy

AI Culture transformation programs

To adopt AI across the company the culture typically needs to adapt as well. Changing the culture of a company is elusive and a long-term endeavor, there are no shortcuts. We help you spec out the steps to change your company culture to an "AI-first" culture with the right framework, events, exchange formats, roles and much more.

Academy

Custom new content creation

Leaders face new problems that others have not seen yet. We help you in identifying and developing new and original content for your learning agenda that is relevant to you and your company. At appliedAI we are used to observing deviations in processes, culture, and technology and quickly sharing best-practices about it.

We help you see the larger picture - and walk the talk with you

AI-Strategy services

Strategy

Usecase discovery and specification

There are plenty of opportunities that can be taken with AI-Technology. We help you to identify these opportunities, to specify them and to prioritize them. This includes asking AI-specific questions, understanding the data behind it and building an implementation roadmap. If you want to move quickly then our engineering team can implement the solution for you.

Strategy

AI strategy and organization development

Defining your AI-Strategy means not only asking the right questions but knowing what to do to achieve each goal exactly. Executing on an AI-Strategy can be fiendishly hard so we are your partner in making it work. Our approach to AI-Strategy implementation and organizational development is based on our view on "building the organization for scaling AI".

Strategy

Exchange of best-practices between leaders

AI is a new technology and right now there is only a little common wisdom about how to apply it. So at appliedAI we foster the exchange between all our partners. At the core of appliedAI is the exchange of best-practices between individual leaders of companies, be it multinationals / DAX or SMEs. Get in touch with other CXOs, managers or fellow AI-Agenda owners.

Strategy

Ethics & Regulation consulting

The ethical use of AI technology has a direct impact on the perception of your organization and the acceptance of AI-driven systems within it. This is not an individual challenge. Even large technology companies had major scandals based on biased systems. In many applications of AI, we need to be careful that its application and implementation are ethically correct to avoid negative outcomes. The regulatory body around AI is still being forged and it can be hard to navigate around these decisions. We help you make the right decisions, case by case.

Strategy

Investment and acquisition strategy

Taking the decision when to "buy" an AI tool or service or even a whole start-up, and when to "make" it yourself is a complex one. With the support of our parent-company "UnternehmerTUM" (Europes largest entrepreneurship center), we help you make the right decisions when it comes to making software, investing in technology or acquiring an AI-startup.
