Press Release "Smart data for smarter decisions: How AI is helping industrial production run more smoothly"


Using artificial intelligence to prevent production downtime: Professor Wolfgang Maaß and his partners are developing a system that helps entrepreneurs to recognise disruptions in production at an early stage so that they can react appropriately. In addition, this new data system not only helps with potential error analysis, but also provides suggestions for remedial action.

Press Release "Hannover Messe: How artificial intelligence is helping make food production smarter"


Smart data packages are providing food producers with greater insight, making production greener and more cost-efficient, but also generating new revenue streams. Because we see a great opportunity for the climate in the digital platform we are developing: the more producers know about the harvest, purchasing behaviour or the prices and available quantities of the resources needed for production, the more precisely and far-sightedly they can plan. All thanks to a platform currently being developed by a research team led by Wolfgang Maaß.

We, from the Chair, are pleased to inform you that the GAIA-X Use Case "FAST" developed from the EVAREST project has now been published on the BMWi and GAIA-X websites

Information and Service Systems (ISS)

Chair in Business Administration, especially Information and Service Systems at Saarland University deals with the development and management of data-driven services, for instance healthcare. Directed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Maaß, the chair investigates how the application of experimental design methods combined with distributed, data analytic approaches lead to adaptive service designs and innovative solutions. This research is conducted in basic and applied research projects in cooperation with leading research and industry partners. Results are applied and validated in industry projects by the research group Smart Service Engineering (SSE) at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).
