Position Paper

The appliedAI Initiative’s standpoint on a german AI strategy

The German Government will publish the German AI Strategy in autumn 2018. The position paper is an answer to the benchmark paper of the Government from June. It should serve politics and the public as a blueprint and a call for action on how Germany should adopt AI in order to keep up with the world in the AI race.

Startup Landscape

In Germany, 132 start-ups now work exclusively or predominantly with artificial intelligence. Together with our partners we identified and evaluated over 600 start-ups to develop the first comprehensive German AI startup landscape. The 132 start-ups that made it onto the landscape are private companies with headquarters or significant development activities in Germany and are founded after 2008. We included only companies that have machine learning (ML) in their core or exhibit a significant usage of ML. We will subsequently publish new insights regarding the German AI start-up landscape to help you get started with this technology and at the same time support our start-ups to get traction.
