KISSKI aims to develop tailored AI-as-a-Service solutions to address the increasing demands in the field of artificial intelligence, especially concerning medical and energy-related infrastructures. As a central objective, the project seeks to satisfy the unique requirements of maintaining high reliability while ensuring security, explainability, and data sovereignty. Customer-oriented consulting concepts and individual training courses are provided to ensure that users benefit from appropriate guidance for implementing and adopting AI.

As the Chair of Information Management and part of the CIDAS, we will, among others, continuously assess the economic sustainability of the developed business model and design concepts to preserve it, as well as conceptualize and integrate entry-level consulting services. With KISSKI, we are delighted to further contribute to the effective and successful use of artificial intelligence in medicine and the energy industry.
