The promise of AI

While illuminating the world, the lighting industry stands on the brink of its own enlightening transformation. As global urbanization accelerates and the call for sustainable solutions intensifies, the demand for innovative lighting solutions is paramount. But beyond the glow of our products, there’s an internal revolution waiting to be sparked: the way we operate, innovate and serve.

Generative AI offers a dual promise. Externally, it can redefine how we perceive and utilize light in our ever-evolving urban landscapes. Internally, it holds the key to optimizing our processes, from product development to customer service, making us agile, efficient, and more responsive to market needs.

The urgency is twofold. By 2030, with 60% of the global population in urban areas, the world will look to us for adaptive lighting solutions that will minimize the carbon footprint of lighting while keeping human well-being in focus. Simultaneously, to stay at the forefront of the industry, we must look inward, leveraging AI to streamline our operations, foster innovation, and enhance customer experiences.

This challenge resonates with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities). By innovating our products and processes, we can reduce energy consumption, elevate urban living, and set new industry benchmarks.

Our challenge

Join us in this dual journey of external illumination and internal transformation. Let’s harness the power of generative AI to craft visionary lighting solutions and redefine the way we shine as a company. Together, we can shape a brighter, more innovative, and more sustainable future.
