Germany is at the top of its game researching Artificial Intelligence. Many a digital product launched today is made possible by services developed through German research. But when it comes to actually making a digital product itself, Germany seems to be lacking behind. When did you hear of the last German Facebook, Uber or Amazon? Today’s episode is on the question why Germany tends to find it difficult to make the translation between researching AI and creating a successful AI startup. We’ll be speaking with Jessica Schmeiss, doctoral researcher at the Humboldt Institute. Her research focusses on digital entrepreneurship and in trying to make AI less of a ‘black box’.
