It will revolutionize your daily work as a digital assistant that does time-consuming and repetitive tasks, as a brainstorming partner, and as an analyst of dispersed information.

2. Computer Vision

Improve customer experience, reduce costs, and refine your decisions with computer vision. AI is transforming visual data into valuable insights in many sectors. For example, in retail you can automate your stock management, minimize stock-outs and maximize the availability of your products. In manufacturing you can accurately identify defects, reduce product recalls, and protect your brand.

Computer vision is an indispensable tool for companies in need of a competitive advantage in a data-driven world.

3. Anomaly Detection & Forecasting

No longer are you forced to be reactive with anomaly detection and forecasting. Now you can shape your success proactively. Stay ahead of market trends and fine-tune your resource management. Plan for changes in customer preferences, replenishment of popular products and overstocking costs. Detect anomalies in your infrastructure before your operations are disrupted. Identify atypical financial transactions and prevent fraud.

Detecting and forecasting anomalies allows you to take real-time measures, facilitating better strategic planning and resource allocation.

Our value proposition is unique by three key differentiators

A team of 300 experts for the Benelux market, that combines two existing competence centers among the Proximus group: AI experts (Ada) and Data experts (Codit AI enablers):

  • AI enablers: Consisting of more than 200 data experts, mainly from our Codit subsidiary, who work on preparing your data for use.
    1. They collect and connect data from various sources, for example by migrating it to an Azure cloud.
    2. In other words, they make the data accessible and understandable to your stakeholders.
    3. Finally, they structure the data and make it compatible.
  • The AI experts build the AI algorithms for all the use cases. There are 90 of these experts in AI and cybersecurity and they are grouped together in a single competence center called Proximus Ada.

a. More than 100 custom-built AI use cases have been deployed internally in all Proximus Group departments (an interactive FAQ for our website, a writing assistant for our customer service agents, customer service agents to respond to online discussions with our customers, a tool for forecasting the restocking of shops with smartphones, etc.). These models can be reused, duplicated, and adapted to other companies and other uses, so our customers don’t have to start from a white page.

b. Working with over 100 customers to build large-scale, scalable cloud solutions together with Codit, our daughter company.

A pragmatic methodology for implementing AI, and more specifically generative AI, is conceived as a journey rather than a project. By drawing on our own experience in this field, we can guide and advise you in realizing your project.

Because we believe that there is no one-size-fits-all AI model, we build bespoke, hybrid AI models that can perform specific tasks and add value to your business.

Our value proposition is unique on the market: it addresses all aspects of an AI project and enables end-to-end implementation and managed services.
