Artificial intelligence turns science fiction into science fact. In 1996, supercomputer “Deep Blue” beat world champion Garry Kasparov at chess. In 2011, supercomputer “Watson” bested the best human players in the television game show Jeopardy. These publicity stunts proved that in some areas, computers can outthink a person.
That has not been lost on Siemens. “Smart bots” are already in action at some 650 units around the world. They help things run more safely and better.
