Artificial Intelligence Mountains Labs

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing is funding the use of artificial intelligence by SMEs through the establishment of model regional AI labs in the amount of €2.3m, with a total 19 "Regional Artificial Intelligence labs" (KI labs). The KIM-Labs project (Künstliche Intelligenz Mountains Labs) will be carried out jointly by TechnologyMountains, the Hahn-Schickard Society for Applied Research and Furtwangen University. Total funding will be €99,929 with a planned start on 1 April 2020.

The labs are intended to help small and medium-sized enterprises in particular, to recognise the potential of AI, to identify concrete areas of application in their sectors and fields of work, and to be able to take some initial steps towards AI applications. Companies will also be able to use the facilities to gather information, network, and to carry out tests and experiments.

KIM-Labs is funded by the AI Lab of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing. It principally aims to support companies which lack both a budget for digital labs and capacity for complex experiments. The academic expertise of the project partners and the support of partner companies with experience in artificial intelligence which is available through the KIM Labs project, will be offered across all sectors, with the goal of removing existing hurdles to AI innovation.
