Platform-enabled KITs of arTificial intelligence FOR an easy uptake by SMEs

Europe’s 23 million smaller businesses represent 99 % of all businesses and account for around three-quarters of all jobs. Small businesses and mid-caps are a key part of the economy. The EU-funded KITT4SME project is developing scope-tailored and industry-ready hardware, software and organisational kits for European SMEs and mid-caps. The aim is to deliver these as a modularly customisable digital platform that can seamlessly introduce artificial intelligence in their production systems. The project will ensure that the kits are widely distributed to a wide audience of SMEs and mid-caps in Europe. What is more, the seamless adoption of the kits will be facilitated with the use of factory systems like ERP, as well as IoT sensors and wearable devices, robots and other factory data sources.
