Predictive maintenance, assistance systems, knowledge management and the optimisation of machine running times are mentioned as fields of application.
IT security is seen as an essential basic condition for the successful use of AI. Nonetheless, the use of systems with AI in industrial production is expected to double, primarily in the areas of logistics, operative planning, and R&D.
Beyond industrial production, high potential is also seen in the areas of automated/autonomous driving, assistance robotics, and traffic flow improvement.
The use of AI is expected to bring considerable improvements. Besides the technical challenges, the challenges of data protection and data integrity must also be overcome during implementation. In this regard, technologies like the blockchain can ensure the security and integrity of data, particularly in the exchange of data and digital networking.
