In the 2022 academic session, Copenhagen Business School in Denmark is accepting applications for a CBS PhD Scholarship in Information systems in Information Systems with an emphasis on the Industrial Internet of Things, Embedded AI, and Business Models.
The Department of Digitalisation’s main research areas are:
(1) Information Technology
(2) Business Models and Digital Platforms
(3) Internet of Things
(4) Artificial intelligence, to name a few.
The Department’s goal is to establish an atmosphere where researchers may reach their full potential in a friendly and conducive setting guided by a shared set of values, objectives, and goals.
The Department’s teaching duties include undergraduate and graduate courses in Information Systems and the Digital Economy.
This post is associated with the “Embedded AI” project, which is supported by DIREC and CBS.
Researchers from Aarhus University, Aalborg University, Alexandra Institute, Copenhagen Business School, and the Technical University of Denmark, as well as private sector industry partners, launched this multidisciplinary initiative.
The “Embedded AI” project aims to investigate new IIoT models involving the merging of AI and IoT to form “Artificial Intelligence of Things” (AIoT), and the creation of Embedded AI, in which all or parts of AI processing are done on sensor devices at the ecosystem’s edge, rather than centrally on cloud-based systems.
The project partners will collaborate to create the technical and socio-commercial aspects of a possible embedded AI-driven Artificial Intelligence of Things.
The CBS team will concentrate on building Embedded AI business models.
There is a need to go beyond traditional business models in embedded AI settings to methods that incorporate embedded AI’s dispersed nature, related hardware limits, and shared infrastructure.
In this context, the CBS team will create scenarios for various sorts of business models in an ecosystem of complementary and even overlapping embedded AI services, based on a foundation of conventional and current state-of-the-art business models.
Finally, the CBS team will offer commercial models that take into account the dispersed and shared nature of embedded AI.
