Customer Interaction and AI

We want to offer our 12 Mio daily customers the best experience possible and make their time at DB as enjoyable as possible - while they're on the train as well as during their transit time on our stations.

Immersive, Mixed Environments

AR and VR get more and more integrated in eveyday life. We think this gives us a chance to drive collaboration and connection. What's your idea on how those technologies can be used to enhance customer experience? 

Exponential Intelligence

Personal assistants can help us make smart decisions and expertise shifts towards the wisdom of the crowd. What's your idea to make those new developments usable in their travel experience?

On-Demand Customization

We believe that products can adapt to our customers based on customer insights and that repetitive tasks should be taken care of. This enables our travellers to use their time with DB as enjoyable as possible. 

And more...

You have another product that can help us to improve the everyday experience of our customers using AI? We're happy to learn more.
