AI is here. Only a few other technologies will shape the world we live in as significantly as AI in the following years. And we are working at the very heart of this transformation. Every day.

It is therefore paramount to understand our role and responsibility as a company in this process to steer the development of AI into a meaningful, bright, and sustainable direction for humanity. statworx next is our contribution to these developments, providing vision, mission, and strategy for our company and people. I am certain that statworx next is a mandatory step the development of our company to stay relevant and be able to shape the world around us for the better.

The road to statworx® next

statworx has always been a place of belief in the power of data. For many years, we have been successfully working together with our customers on their data and AI-driven future. By doing so, we were able to grow the company, hire a larger team and expand to new locations. Thereby, success in terms of growth, new clients and new team members carried our motivation and purpose for a long time.

The question of why

After a long and cumbersome pandemic year of 2020, statworx and also myself began to ask the question of „why“. Why are we doing what we are doing? What does it all mean? Where are we heading? Money, clients, projects? There must be more. There was more.

This will lead to a profound transformation of many aspects of our modern world.

Driven by these questions I went on a journey to create a vision for the future of statworx® that brings a purpose into our everyday hustle. In retrospect, this endeavor was – hands down – one of the most important and enlightening things I have ever accomplished for the company. Inspired by the discovery of Ikigai, an old Japanese philosophy of finding meaning in life, I’ve started to explore different dimensions of purpose and „why“ for our company and also for myself. According to Ikigai you want to live in the intersection of (1) „what I am good at“, (2) „what I love doing“, (3) „what I get paid for“ and (4) „what the world needs“. Clearly, statistics had already proven 1-3 – but what about 4? What was it, that the world demands and we provide?

Being a bold person, I chose the attack vector of thinking about the largest challenges that mankind is facing. Climate change and resource scarcity, societies shifting and transforming and a global economy in the midst of the digital transformation. Then, it struck me. In the center of many of these great challenges read AI. And within AI there is statworx and every person in our company. Ultimately, this means that we are working at the heart of a technology that is of uttermost importance and impact for our world and the challenges we are facing. Immediately, this transformed my perspective on what we were doing as a company in the last years. Being part of something bigger that is so impactful reevaluates the ambition of what we can achieve.We are here to shape the future for the better. But how? Changing the future is hard, but can be achieved by questioning the status quo and then engaging in a series of smaller changes that ultimately accumulate into change. Now, next, future. We must challenge the now, create the next and shape the future for the better. statworx next was born.

We strive to empower our economy, enable people and society and protect the environment using data
and AI technology.

The role of AI

Artificial intelligence has already begun and will continue to transform the world we are living in ways we cannot even imagine. Due to the rise of intelligence in machines, humans will be no longer the only entities on the planet being able to perform intelligent tasks. This will lead to a profound transformation of many aspects of our modern world.

This will lead to a profound transformation of many aspects of our modern world.

People

On an atomic level, AI will ultimately impact the lives of every human being on the planet. We are already experiencing the first effects of AI on our lives but must expect an exponential speed of changes in the next decade that are currently even impossible to imagine.

Economy

AI will radically transform worldwide economies by creating new business models and machine workers that are able to process large amounts of data to solve intelligent, prior human-executed tasks. This will lead to massive economies of scale and disruption of many existing market structures.

Society

On the level of our society, AI will cause massive social transformations due to the change of many current models of employment and value creation, leading to a new system of labor work in which humans and intelligent machines will co-exist and co-create together.

Environment

As all of the previous systems are connected and jointly being embedded into our environment, AI will consequently also impact the latter. While there is great hope to tackle environmental challenges using artificial intelligence, there is also an urge to manage the exponentially growing resource demands of AI in a responsible and sustainable direction.After a long and cumbersome pandemic year of 2020, statworx and also myself began to ask the question of „why“. Why are we doing what we are doing? What does it all mean? Where are we heading? Money, clients, projects? There must be more. There was
more.

Our role

At statworx, we believe in the power of data and artificial intelligence. For more than a decade, we have been pioneering the field in hundreds of projects for dozens of customers in the German-speaking region.

We have to empower our economy in Germany and Europe to stay competitive and relevant in a global, AI-driven future.

We have to educate people and society about AI, its potentials, limitations and threats.

We have to protect our planet, environment and resources using data and AI technology.

Ultimately, these responsibilities conclude into a

after many days and nights of brainstorming and research, thereby working my way through endless articles, videos, and books, I finally was able to see a picture of the future in front of my inner eye. statworx next was born.
