What is an AI entrepreneur

Making startups in the field of artificial intelligence visible and thus offering opportunities for networking: With this aim, the applied AI Initiative publishes a regularly updated overview of the German AI start-up landscape. The technological developments in artificial intelligence are proceeding rapidly. Cooperation between established companies and innovative, sometimes highly specialized startups make it possible to quickly and successfully expand existing business models using methods of artificial intelligence - or to develop completely new business models. At the same time, the following applies: AI systems get better and better the more data and learning opportunities they receive - for example through cooperation with various partner companies.

To the method

appliedAI is an initiative of UnternehmerTUM, the innovation and start-up center of the Technical University of Munich, and is involved in the platform learning systems. Together with partners, appliedAI identified startups that were founded after 2009, have their headquarters or development focus in Germany and a clear technological focus on machine learning. The content clustering describes the fields of application of the developed AI solutions in companies:

  • Enterprise Intelligence: Exploiting data sources that were previously too difficult or too expensive to analyze
  • Enterprise Function: Increasing productivity in existing tasks by supporting employees with AI-based tools
  • Industry: Cooperation with startups that offer industry-specific products and services based on machine learning
  • Technology Type: Tools for developing AI-based software to secure competitive advantages
