How we work

The Siemens AI Lab is not only a digital forerunner but also a pioneer on new ways of work. Thus, we organize our team according to approaches of Holacracy, a method of decentralized management, in which authority and decision-making are distributed throughout a holarchy of self-organizing teams rather than being vested in a management hierarchy. Based on several 'Roles' designated to various 'Circles' this approach encourages individual team members to take initiative and gives them a process in which their concerns and ideas can be addressed in an agile, efficient and transparent working environment.

Our residency program

We not only strive for novel and promising business solutions but also focus on the exploration of cutting edge AI research. In 6 months, our so called residencies challenge fundamental problems of Industrial AI and research novel approaches that will drive the adoption of AI in the industrial setting. As part of the AI Lab community they have access to the before-mentioned unique pool of experts from the industrial domain. Thereby, they are able to discover important technology trends early and help Siemens to position itself on the frontier of AI research.

Get to know us

Whether it’s hackathons, talks, meetups or long term initiatives: The Siemens AI Lab is the central platform for collaboration and knowledge transfer within a vibrant and growing AI community. Our goal is to expand the Siemens comfort zone in AI technology not only by tangible prototypes, but also with entirely new approaches and collaborations. We want to establish a highly connected ecosystem of students, startups, talents, experts, companies and entrepreneurs to provide a fertile environment for innovators and creators.

What people say about us

"Amazing to see which outcomes can be achieved when you bring together the right skills and mindset with the latest digital technology and let teams work on real life business challenges. This is exactly what our MindSphere Application Centers are doing together with our customers. Embracing the creativity of the crowd, e.g. via this MACathon, to speed up value creation and build even better solutions will give us the next leap in our digital transformation. Awesome job by the AI lab to set this up!."
