Study by Fraunhofer IIS/EAS serves as basis for development process
The Free State of Saxony is working hard to expand its position as a leading location in the domain of artificial intelligence (AI). An AI strategy is an important milestone on the road to achieving this goal, and in the summer of 2020 the State Chancellery launched an elaboration process for just such a strategy. Together with participants from business, science, research, trade associations and the general public, the Free State plans to present its AI strategy as a roadmap by the end of the first half of 2021.
The starting point and foundation of this process is the “Artificial Intelligence – Expertise and Innovation Potential in Saxony” study published by Fraunhofer IIS’s Engineering of Adaptive Systems division EAS. In a comprehensive evaluation, it sheds light on how companies and research are positioned with regard to AI and the hurdles they face. In addition, it outlines a series of possible actions they could take.
