Artificial Intelligence (AI) is developing rapidly and will change the business world profoundly in the coming years. AI technologies can drive cars, assist in surgical procedures or take over work that requires special strength or computing power and cannot be performed by humans. The Hamburg region would like to become a pioneer in the AI field and play a central role in Europe.

To do this, the Hanseatic city is funding various projects related to artificial intelligence. This also includes the Artificial Intelligence Center Hamburg (ARIC), which was founded in 2019. ARIC is the competence centre for artificial intelligence in Hamburg and the metropolitan region and bundles AI competences in companies, administration and science.
