The digital transformation presents companies with new challenges and at the same time opens up unique opportunities. Technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI) offer diverse potentials for companies and can help to improve central value-creating processes. Our KI-Lab informs small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as start-ups in the Stuttgart region about these potentials, sensitises them to the topic of AI, helps them build up the corresponding expertise and accompanies them in concrete AI projects and pilot projects. 

The KI-Lab Region Stuttgart bundles AI know-how from research, consulting and practice. It is a central, low-threshold point of contact for SMEs and start-ups on AI issues. A multi-stage information, training and competence transfer programme specifically addresses the AI-specific needs of SMEs and start-ups. The KI-Lab supports the analysis of the status quo, the definition of realistic goals and shows how the use of AI technologies can support SMEs and start-ups. 

The KI-Lab offers interested SMEs and start-ups support for a comprehensive range of relevant questions. The services of the KI-Lab include the implementation of information events, training workshops, online training offers and intensive consultations as well as the support of pilot AI projects. Further individual services can be tailored to the needs of SMEs and start-ups. 

The project is coordinated by ZD.BB GmbH, Böblingen. In addition to the Böblingen district, other partners include the Herman Hollerith Teaching and Research Centre at Reutlingen University (Faculty of Computer Science) and the Böblingen/Sindelfingen Software Centre. In addition, the project is actively supported by the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation, the Stuttgart Region Skilled Workers Alliance, the Böblingen District Chamber, the Stuttgart Region Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Stuttgart Region Chamber of Crafts, the Böblingen District Chamber of Crafts and the industry partners IBM Deutschland, MHP and dibuco.
