HARMAN has developed “Sherlock” – an AI colleague that completely redefines the innovation management workflow in the Lifestyle Audio Division. Sherlock is trained to identify the valuable information out of the plethora of data created every minute around the world, carry out targeted market research and provide guidance on the prospects of future projects based on data, thus replacing the lengthy manual technology scouting process focused on a few individuals with predictive analytics. Furthermore, as the results are transparent and shared on the intranet, it allows for deeper collaboration within all team members and further streamlines the development process.
