Artificial intelligence feasibility consultations

AIRE offers a service of consulting on the practicality of artificial intelligence solutions, during which we evaluate company’s ability to implement artificial intelligence solutions. As a result of the assessment, an expert assessment is prepared, which consists of a mapping of the company’s current state, an analysis of the use of digital technologies and data, and the possibility/prerequisite and practicality of implementing artificial intelligence solutions.

The service is intended for small and medium-sized industrial companies that have the desire and ability to invest in artificial intelligence solutions in the company.

AI feasibility consulting is carried out by industrial process experts with long-term experience in the field of artificial intelligence.

During the process-oriented analysis, company will be helped to understand how to optimize the technologies and data already in use in the company by the introduction of artificial intelligence. In addition, the analysis deals with the company’s ability to increase flexibility with digital solutions, facilitating processes and increasing the company’s competitiveness.

A prerequisite for receiving AIRE services is also the completion of IMECC OÜ’s digital maturity consultation, and the accounting of the services will be recorded as the use of “VTA” (minor aid).

The amount of the “VTA” for AI ​​feasibility consulting service is 1400 EUR.

The amount of the “VTA” for AIRE digital maturity counseling is 600 EUR.

* During the AIRE project, the company’s digital maturity consulting is carried out once a year for a three-year period.

During the period November 2021 – June 2022, 12 companies, including Tarmeko Spoon, HUUM, Tiksoja Puidugurpt, Estiko Plastar, Torm Metall, received advice in the field of artificial intelligence from Tartu Science Park. The companies that have received advice have already prepared pilot projects for their artificial intelligence solutions, which have also received support with the support of MKM, including Tarmeko Spoon received a grant of 65,000 euros and HUUM 35,000 euros for the financing of the pilot project.
