AI For Hamburg

When a machine or computer solves problems or makes automatic decisions on tasks that normally require human intelligence, we are talking about Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The strength of AI lies in its ability to learn from (large amounts of) data. Companies can increase their added value and efficiency by using AI.

AI.HAMBURG promotes the knowledge and widespread use of artificial intelligence and especially machine learning in companies in the region. Smart companies benefit the Hamburg economy and have a positive impact on the competitiveness of the entire metropolitan region.

AI.Hamburg is a founding member of the AI4Germany Initiative, which brings together leading initiatives in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) to actively support the local economy and society in Germany in the application of artificial intelligence – and thus accompanying Germany into the age of AI.

“Artificial intelligence automates thought and decision processes. This is power that brings with it an enormous potential for positive, economic and social change for a region like Hamburg. Companies must work together with science and politics, and initiatives such as AI.HAMBURG, to ensure the responsible and profitable design of both AI-controlled data trading and the symbiosis between AI and humans. Those who start too late to master both, leave their competitors and especially the global digital platforms in the USA and China important room for manoeuvre and growth and ultimately their existence.”

We know that this task is so enormous that it can only be mastered together.”
