IBM’s supercomputer Watson beat two champions in the U.S. quiz show Jeopardy in 2011. The computer’s performance had a profound impact on the global understanding of artificial intelligence. Nowadays, AI knows hardly any boundaries, said Dr. Wolfgang Hildesheim, head of the IBM Watson Group in the German-speaking countries. The Crew Interactive Mobile companion (CIMON) project consists of the world’s first flying, autonomous astronaut assistant, which is about the size of a medical ball. CIMON can see, hear and speak and completed its first mission to the ISS space station in late 2018. Hildesheim and the Watson team in Hamburg now hope to establish an AI ecosystem in the Hanseatic city allowing key organizations to work together.
