The Service-Meister Project has been chosen for sponsorship within the scope of the AI Innovation Competition of the German Federal Government. A panel of experts of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) has awarded funding to the industrial project, which is based on artificial intelligence (AI). On 1 January 2020, the Service-Meister Consortium led by the eco Association will start implementing the platform. The goal is to create a service ecosystem that enables small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular to integrate external partners for services.
