How to Establish an Internal AI Strategy in a Company like Volkswagen?Joan Clarke Stage
The Volkswagen AG is one of the leading car manufacturers in the world with thousands of employees, processes and IT systems to keep the company running. Although we are not a software company today, we realized that digitalization and especially Artificial Intelligence (AI) will have a large impact on our products and services but also on our ways of working. That’s why we decided to establish an AI strategy for our internal processes so that we use latest AI-related technologies to improve the company and motivate our employees for the related challenges and opportunities. In this presentation, we want to outline how we, as an industrial enterprise, defined our AI strategy and what the concrete goals are. We will also show how we are implementing this strategy and which obstacles we faced so far. By providing this transparency, we seek to establish a small community among traditional enterprises like ours to exchange best practices and drive the AI transformation forward.
