Applied AI at Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence

We apply big data and machine learning to Bosch products and services to create AI solutions that are safe, robust, and explainable.

Bosch BCAI - Industrial AI


Real-world impact across Bosch domains

Our goal is to create AI-based solutions that increase efficiency at Bosch plants, optimize supply chains, improve quality of Bosch products, and reduce costs.



Bosch is a world-class manufacturing company. We operate hundreds of manufacturing plants with thousands of assembly lines, where millions of products are produced.

At Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence, we leverage big data and machine learning technologies to enhance the quality of Bosch products by optimizing manufacturing operations at our plants. Rapid advancements in big data technologies have revolutionized the way we collect and analyze data from Bosch plants. Today, using deep learning techniques, we apply AI to various manufacturing processes at Bosch plants such as: Automated Optical Inspection, Anomaly Detection, Root Cause Analysis, or Production Scheduling, which enables Bosch to provide our customers with the highest quality of products that are "Invented for Life".



Bosch is a leading engineering company with a comprehensive expertise in vehicle technology that facilitates new mobility offerings, as well as innovative home technology solutions.

We generate and collect data at various phases during our engineering design process such as simulation, testing, and field operations. We leverage AI technologies to extract value from the data in order to advance functionality, performance, and design our Bosch products. Further, we streamline and enhance technical capabilities, e.g. where complexity of physical processes demands innovative approaches.

Supply Chain Management


The flow of goods and materials is critical for our operations at Bosch. We leverage the increasing amount of data which is generated along the supply chain to further optimize processes and ensure timely delivery of our products.

At the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence, we use AI to solve challenges related to supply chain management such as management of inventory, forecasting of demand, and optimization of packaging sizes to streamline operations and ensure availability of materials and goods.

Intelligent Services


The rapid growth in connectivity of sensors and physical systems is impacting every Bosch business domain - Mobility, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods and Energy and Building Technology. By 2020, more that 90% of Bosch products are expected to be IP-enabled and as Bosch IoT solutions increasingly involve Artificial Intelligence, these systems will progressively become more and more intelligent.

The Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence is enabling this transformation by bringing in a unique combination of competences in state-of-art big data and machine learning technologies, and domain-specific expertise. From community-based parking to predicting disease risk in tomatoes, we strive to create solutions that make everyday life easier, safer, and more sustainable.
