Check out our various Panel sessions on the application of AI – how does Artificial Intelligence influence our daily (working) life? Concrete Use Cases from practitioners open up this “black box” of potential.

AI & Technologies

AI technology has led to major improvements in human-like perception of machines.

Natural language processing and image recognition are reliably used in commercial applications today and only the beginning of possibilities and methods businesses can apply.

AI & Business

AI can provide a competitive advantage in most industries. The possible applications penetrate any business areas.

From “intelligent” chatbots to predictive analytics. Hence, the impact of AI on Businesses will be transformative.
