BMW adopts ethical code for the use of artificial intelligence
Within the scope of the digital transformation of the company, automobile manufacturer BMW uses more than 50 applications of artificial intelligence (AI). The company has now developed a code of ethics for the use of this technology.
processing. The integration of auditory perception can bring advantages in the future, especially for urban scenarios.

Linking AI with the control of systems and robots:  A controlling AI recently celebrated its premiere at the BMW Group with a smart application in the Steyr plant (Austria). This accelerates logistics processes by ensuring that empty containers avoid unnecessary trips on conveyor belts.

AI in vehicle production:  Since 2018, the BMW Group has been using various AI applications in series production. One focus is on automated image recognition processes.  Here, the AI evaluates images of a component during ongoing production and compares them with hundreds of other images of the same sequence within milliseconds. In this way, the AI detects deviations from the standard in real time and checks whether, for example, all the intended parts have been installed or mounted in the right place. Flexible AI-based applications are now gradually replacing permanently installed camera portals at the BMW Group. A mobile standard camera is all that is needed to take pictures during production; employees take pictures of the relevant component from different perspectives and mark possible deviations on the pictures. In this way, they create an image database in order to set up a neural network that will later independently evaluate the images.
