What you need to run AI projects without your own infrastructure
Whitepaper: Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn’t just a pipe dream any more. The technology is here. It’s well-developed, accessible, affordable… and already being used to automate tasks and optimize processes. Companies are also aware of this and are increasingly focusing on the use of AI tools. Implementing such complex technologies is fraught with challenges, however, and this is especially true for medium-sized companies. “AI as a Service” (AIaaS) makes it easier to overcome several of the usual hurdles.

Whether it’s for processing customer feedback immediately, verifying and correctly issuing invoices and other documents, extracting information that is technically relevant or for automated video stream analysis, AI tools allow for a wide variety of tasks to be performed more accurately and significantly more efficiently.

AI systems offer people support in daily tasks, which means that time and resources can be utilized more sensibly. However, several companies have been unsuccessful in their attempt to implement such systems. The “Artificial Intelligence as a Service” whitepaper demonstrates how the flexibility and transparency of AIaaS across all industries can ensure the successful and cost-effective deployment of AI projects and help these industries to reach their full potential in doing so.

The “Artificial Intelligence as a Service” whitepaper contains:

  • Explanations of possible AI applications
  • Case studies showing the use of AI tools in a wide variety of industries
  • Explanations of the AI as a Service concept
  • Interviews with experts

In this whitepaper, experts from Google Cloud and Lufthansa Industry Solutions, among others, give their insights on the possibilities and potential of AIaaS.

In this whitepaper, available to you free of charge, you can read all the insights and explanations of the challenges and opportunities offered by AI and AIaaS in their entirety. Some particularly relevant insights have already been summarized for you below.

Mind Map zu Aufgabenbereichen für KI-Tools
With the support of AI tools, a diverse range of tasks within a company can be executed more precisely and considerably more efficiently.

The Use of AI is on the Rise in all Industries

Even though only 8 percent of companies use AI tools, two-thirds consider artificial intelligence to be ground breaking technology. This trend is unstoppable. The automobile industry, for example, not only uses AI for the voice activation and control of on-board software, it has also long since recognized its importance in the context of autonomous driving. Demand forecasts are used in the supply chain and, in industry, AI tools optimize machine maintenance and repair. In the future, virtually no company will be able to operate without artificial intelligence.

AI Projects Usually Face a Number of Challenges

Despite the opportunities that AI projects can offer, many companies – especially medium-sized ones – still expect there to be challenges and, therefore, shy away from them. Insufficient expertise, unsuitable data sets or the fundamental complexity of such projects cause many AI initiatives to fail at an early stage. Comprehensive consulting is essential here if the competencies and resources available within a company are not enough to guarantee success. AIaaS can provide the jump-start necessary and to overcome several of the usual hurdles. However, a basic understanding of AI, which is established gradually within a company, remains essential.

The Advantages of Artificial Intelligence as a Service

Complexity, resources, costs… there are numerous reasons why AI, while relevant to all companies, is currently only actually in use in a few. Bringing in an AIaaS provider solves many of these problems up front. Companies receive easy-to-implement AI tools and flexible, pre-taught models that can be adapted and scaled where required. It also requires no in-house infrastructure and the costs are based purely on actual usage. All industries and companies, particularly those that are still hesitant about implementing AI initiatives for reasons of complexity or cost, can benefit from AIaaS.
