The growing importance of Berlin as a centre of artificial intelligence is not only noticeable in science. The region's economy is also benefiting from technological progress. The companies, 80 percent of which operate in the business-to-business sector, mainly develop expert and language assistance as well as chatbots. Besides trade, the entertainment sector and industry, the developments are mainly used in three areas of application:
Business Intelligence & Process management
With 36 per cent, innovations and services which analyse and improve internal processes account for the largest share. For example, knowledge-based expert and language systems automate business processes, making them more efficient and transparent. With the help of AI systems, market data is analysed and evaluated with a view to expected future developments. Other developments simplify personnel recruitment or help to implement marketing activities in a more targeted manner and to address customers better with data-protected analyses.
AI systems from Berlin are used not only to support the internal processes of hospitals, but also for operation planning, diagnostics and data analysis of specific clinical pictures. Apps on fitness and health are developed as well as chatbots which accompany patients during the healing process: from the diagnosis of the illness to the visit to the doctor.
Mobility and City Intelligence
A special focus of the Berlin AI companies is the development of driver assistance systems. Besides the core areas of autonomous driving, Berlin is also working on AI systems for road maps, apps for pedestrians and augmented reality systems for air traffic.
