How AI changes the world. Bit by bit.

Artificial Intelligence is seeping into our everyday lives. In fact, it changes the world around us – bit by bit. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to see how we can make the best use of the new technologies and even how to prepare ourselves for bigger changes that the new era holds for us.

We will look at best practices and worse failures:
Eight real-life use cases, coming from our peers with the pure purpose of learning from each other and share the valuable experiences for further improvement and success.

Amongst many interesting topics, we will look at how AI is changing the automotive industry, how AI is used to extract data from documents, increase translation efficiency, and even empower organisations.   

As always, there will be presentations and workshops, and of course, plenty of time to network with peers across different companies and industries.

INVENTING BY COMBINING: CREATING AWESOME NEW AI USE-CASES
As we all know, new technologies are a pillar for progress and growth. Although new technologies are very exciting, often we overestimate their impact and fail to see how they could be used on an daily basis. In our interactive Human Centered Design workshop we will apply Artificial Intelligence to every day human problems and discover how this can generate real value.

DATA PREDICITION FOR EVERYONE – A ROADMAP FOR IMPLEMENTATION
You have big data sets and do not use them for anything? You might have a few gold nuggets in front of you.

In this workshop we want to give you an insight on how to get those gold nuggets. We will start by giving you a short introduction on how to approach your data analysis project. But what does the theory help you without any hands-on experience? Therefore, we will also let you analyze a small data set that you get the gist of how to find your hidden gold nuggets. To complement the workshop, we will also present you a few use cases.
