Files about Artificial intelligence

The industrial world is in a constant state of change. Machine learning will change mechanical engineering and thus many user industries. Implementation has already begun - now the focus is on concrete application scenarios and their implementation.
Digitalisation not only changes production, it also leads to entirely new business models. The platform economy is also anchored in traditional industries such as mechanical engineering. However, success is only possible if this change is not seen as a pure IT project in the company. The platform economy needs real team spirit, the lonely fighter has had its day.
