Siemens, one of the leading technology companies, and Microsoft, a global software company, have joined forces for a new partnership. Siemens Industrial Copilot, which serves as an artificial intelligence assistant, is preparing to support the transformation of the professional world in various sectors including manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, and infrastructure.
Siemens and Microsoft held a launch event on October 31st. The event not only introduced Siemens Industrial Copilot but also announced plans for a series of artificial intelligence assistants that will be developed according to different industrial needs. These advanced tools seem to prioritize strengthening “human-machine collaboration” and increasing overall productivity.
According to expectations, this goal also includes global industries. Companies aim to extend the benefits of productive artificial intelligence to a wide range of applications. AI Copilots can open doors for significant advancements in the automotive, packaged consumer goods, and machinery manufacturing sectors, in addition to the manufacturing industry.
As an example, Schaeffler, a well-known German automotive manufacturer, can be mentioned. The company already seems to have embraced Siemens Industrial Copilot. With this move, the importance of the practical applicability of artificial intelligence applications and tools in today’s industrial environment is emphasized.
Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, appears hopeful about the future. He predicts that emerging and ongoing artificial intelligence developments could be a catalyst for innovation across all industries. Siemens CEO Roland Busch also seems to share this view. In this context, he emphasized the importance of the transformative potential of these tools in the areas of design, development, production, and operation.
Furthermore, attention was drawn to the presence of human-machine collaboration in solving the existing labor shortage problem. It was also mentioned that the technology engineers possess will accelerate code development and that there are tools to encourage innovation. Therefore, it seems that this move will not be limited to technological progress alone.
However, the mentioned technology does not seem to be exclusive to just these two companies. Bosch, which is Siemens’ direct competitor, has also entered the field of artificial intelligence and Web3. The company announced a collaboration with the Fetch.ai Foundation and offered a $100 million grant program. The aim is to provide funding for artificial intelligence and Web3 projects.
