Concepts for the design or adaption of artificial intelligence business models

A plethora of actors from research and practice alike marvel about the great potential of the application of artificial intelligence (AI). However, when it comes to the hard facts, firms regularly struggle to identify suitable business cases to regain the heavy investments often necessary to develop AI-based offerings.

Hence theses in this topic revolve around factors influencing the successful utilization of AI, approached from a broader economic or the more specific business model perspective.

Theses in this center of gravity shall aim to design workshop concepts or frameworks, preferably molded into (digital) tools, with the aim to support managers in the design of new artificial intelligence business models or the adaption of currently employed business models for the effective utilization of AI.

Theses in this topic are connected to the research project IIP-Ecosphere ( of our chair.
