Artificial intelligence recognizes patterns of complex processes and helps to integrate similarities, statistical anomalies and simulations and to derive decision recommendations. Our researchers support the BMWi project KEEN with expertise in the development of AI methods and their application in industry. The project was among the winners of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovation competition of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). KEEN was awarded in September 2019 and started in April 2020.
The KEEN innovation platform is being developed in the project. It networks 20 industrial and scientific institutions with the aim of accelerating the use of AI technologies and AI methods in the process industry and comprehensively assessing their potential. The process industry, which includes the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, is the third largest industrial sector in Germany.
