New AI-supported assistant to increase productivity
Microsoft and Siemens are deepening their existing partnership. Microsoft reported on this last Thursday. The two companies are now presenting a jointly developed, AI-supported assistant.
This assistant is called Siemens Industrial Copilot. It is designed to improve collaboration between man and machine in production.
The integration between the Siemens Teamcenter software for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Microsoft Teams will also further pave the way to the industrial metaverse, Microsoft promises in its press release. This will also simplify cross-functional, virtual collaboration between development engineers, customer service staff and other teams.
Man and machine
Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft, says: “With this next generation of AI, we have a unique opportunity to accelerate innovation across the industrial sector.” Nadella goes on to explain that Microsoft is building on its long-standing collaboration with Siemens and combining AI advances in the Microsoft Cloud with Siemens’ expertise.
Roland Busch, CEO of Siemens AG, explains with regard to AI: “The technology has the potential to revolutionize how companies design, develop, manufacture – ultimately the entire operation. Easier collaboration between man and machine will enable engineers to develop software faster, promote innovation and overcome the shortage of skilled workers.”
