CognitiveTank hosted by Helsana

Empower your organisation with vitamin AI

Digital transformation has already begun some time ago, yet, we are still in the very early stages of the AI-powered transformation. We are at the point where most organisations stand in front of two options. Leave it or take it. We must not forget: both options pair with crucial consequences.

When we think about which option to take, we need to take into consideration that Artificial Intelligence represents an opportunity – not only for businesses but also for society. AI drives innovation, productivity, efficiency and growth, thus, it is a vital ingredient of empowering people, businesses and industries. Artificial Intelligence is not about machines ruling humans. It is about machines and humans working together. When you combine human creativity & passion with technology, the results can be today almost unthinkable.

Considering the benefits of change, however, we cannot ignore that change does come with massive challenges. To understand how new technologies can be developed and applied to your own business is certainly not easy. For that you need the right framework to ask more profound questions and find the right strategy. Our CognitiveTanks provide that framework. We look at hands-on use-cases from a variety of industries and see how AI is being implemented into strategies, processes, operations and services and, see how we can apply the learning in our organisations and lives.
