Deutsche Telekom is one of the world's leading integrated telecommunications companies, with 242 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed-network lines, and 22 million broadband lines.

We provide fixed-network/broadband, mobile communications, Internet, IPTV products, and information and communication technology (ICT) solutions for business and corporate customers.

Deutsche Telekom is present in more than 50 countries, with an employee count of 226,300 (Dec 31, 2020) worldwide. We generated revenue of 101 billion Euros in the 2020 financial year, about 66% of it outside Germany.


Today’s voice solutions are limited to the home. You can ask your voice assistant to control gadgets, play your favourite song, and much more from the comfort of your couch. Then when it's time to jump in your car,  you’re back to using the buttons on your dash. Once at work, it’s your mail client sending reminders or checking your calendar on your phone.

Deutsche Telekom is looking for innovators/experts who can help them create an end-to-end seamless assistant to engage and lend a virtual hand in daily life.

Instead of an impersonal device, can the virtual assistant be tailored to create a truly personalised hologram, that you can change like a customisable avatar who accompanies you when needed and assists in various aspects of your life?

  •  Artificial Intelligence  
  • Personal and generic data      
  • Optimise daily scenarios (whether individually or in combinations, for communication, entertainment, or control of your digital life)

Any non-confidential summaries of novel ideas in these areas would be of potential interest 

What's in it for you?

A successful collaboration could mean forming a partnership/joint venture to co-develop and co-launch the idea to market.

This is a global challenge and DT is willing to collaborate with individuals/freelancers and other industry participants/universities.

We are seeking solutions at any stage of development.
