Siemens and Microsoft join forces to drive AI adoption in industrial fields

German technology company Siemens has joined forces with Microsoft to introduce the Siemens Industrial Copilot, a new generative artificial intelligence (AI)-powered assistant. This partnership was recently announced.

The main goal of this AI assistant is to enhance productivity and promote collaboration between humans and machines. The announcement also revealed plans to develop additional AI assistants tailored to professionals in the manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, and infrastructure sectors.

Siemens and Microsoft have expressed their desire to bring the benefits of generative AI to various industries worldwide. Specifically within the manufacturing industry, Copilots for automotive, consumer packaged goods, and machine building are planned.

According to Microsoft, Schaeffler, a German automotive manufacturer, has already adopted the Siemens Industrial Copilot.

Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, envisions the next generation of AI accelerating innovation across the industrial sector as a whole.

Siemens CEO Roland Busch shares the same sentiment, stating,

“This has the potential to revolutionize the way companies design, develop, manufacture, and operate.”

He highlights how the accessibility of human-machine collaboration allows engineers to speed up code development, innovation, and overcome labor shortages.

In February, Bosch, a direct competitor of Siemens, partnered with the Fetch.ai Foundation to launch a $100 million grant scheme supporting projects related to Web3, AI, and Internet of Things development.

Bosch showcased its automotive innovations at the IAA Mobility fair in Munich, Germany, in September. This event featured the participation of the European Union and various blockchain companies.

The emergence of high-level AI models, such as OpenAI’s GPT-4 in November 2022, has had a significant impact on industries worldwide.
