Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Conference 2020

25.03.20 - 26.03.20

AI and Machine Learning - from hype to hope and hurry up!

During the last years we have seen the hype around Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In this conference we will take it one step further showing how the industry has implemented the theory into technical solutions with emphasis on use cases and business value.

The examples range from maintenance through process optimisation. We will also cover some basics within data analytics, deterministic AI and computer vision and AI. The program will cover some new concepts and theory with practical implementation examples demonstrating how far we have reached.

The conference will be relevant both to early adopters and organisations still waiting to get started with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The presenters come from the industry, academia and represent both end users, research and suppliers.
