Siemens and Microsoft are partnering to drive AI adoption across various industries. They’ve introduced the Siemens Industrial Copilot, an AI-powered assistant designed to enhance human-machine collaboration and productivity. The companies also plan to build additional copilots for manufacturing, infrastructure, transportation, and healthcare sectors.
Siemens and Microsoft: A New Era of AI Adoption
Siemens and Microsoft are joining forces to drive cross-industry AI adoption, introducing innovative tools designed to enhance human-machine collaboration and boost productivity. This partnership aims to revolutionize industries worldwide, starting with the launch of Siemens Industrial Copilot.
Introducing Siemens Industrial Copilot
Siemens Industrial Copilot, a generative AI-powered assistant, is the first step in this partnership. This tool is designed to improve human-machine collaboration in manufacturing, enabling users to generate, optimize, and debug complex automation code rapidly. The result? Tasks that took weeks can now be completed in mere minutes.
“With this next generation of AI, we have a unique opportunity to accelerate innovation across the entire industrial sector,” said Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO, Microsoft.
Boosting Productivity and Efficiency
Siemens Industrial Copilot promises to enhance productivity and efficiency across the industrial lifecycle. By using natural language, it can assist maintenance staff with detailed repair instructions and provide engineers with quick access to simulation tools. Furthermore, the copilot ingests automation and process simulation information from Siemens’ open digital business platform, Siemens Xcelerator, and enhances it with Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service.
“Together with Microsoft, our shared vision is to empower customers with the adoption of generative AI,” says Roland Busch, CEO of Siemens AG.
The Future: AI Copilots for All Industries
Siemens and Microsoft envision AI copilots assisting professionals in various industries, including manufacturing, infrastructure, transportation, and healthcare. Additionally, the Siemens Teamcenter app for Microsoft Teams will be generally available in December 2023, accelerating innovation across the product lifecycle. This partnership is a significant step towards enabling the industrial metaverse, simplifying virtual collaboration among design engineers, frontline workers, and other teams across business functions.
