AI of things

You call it AIoT – Artificial Intelligence of things – when Artificial Intelligence meets the Internet of Things. Combining these two technologies opens a wide range of opportunities for companies to innovate and digitize their existing systems. While IoT provides an enormous amount of data from connected devices, AI quickly extracts real-time insights from this data. This allows companies to make informed decisions without human interference. According to Gartner, more than 80% of enterprise IoT projects will include an AI component by 2022. Today, only 10% use the combination of IoT and AI.
In 2021, AIxIA brings this topic closer to you and provides you with impulses on how to combine the two technologies to have a positive impact on your business.


Data spaces in AI

Data is an essential resource in the 21st century. It is not only important for economic growth, competitiveness, and innovation, but also for society since it can for example improve health care or create safer and cleaner transport systems. For this reason, the European Commission created a data strategy. On top, other initiatives such as the International Data Spaces got formed. They aim to create a secure data space that supports enterprises of different industries and sizes.


The implementation of AI in cybersecurity is both a help and a hindrance. By using machine learning algorithms AI detects threats automatically and fights them without the involvement of humans. Supporting handling huge quantities of security data or identifying threats in the system are just some of the advantages. But it can also open new doors for security vulnerabilities. For this reason, it is essential to work with experts when it comes to cybersecurity.

Edge AI

Edge AI is the combination of edge computing and AI. It is a concept where AI algorithms are installed on a local device that has edge computing capacity. With edge AI, users can process data in real-time since it does not require systems to connect to others. Therefore it is also used for high sensible data. Typical application fields are autonomous cars, surveillance and monitoring, and the Industrial IoT.
