HOW AI SHAPES OUR DAILY LIVES
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GERMANY AND CHINA?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is advancing faster than ever. Transforming industries and driving billion-dollar investments globally, not only is it the center of most innovations, it’s also the center of most conversations. Its development seems obvious and visible, but often it takes subtle and invisible forms and its impact is profound: It will reinvent the way we live and interact with the world.
This event is tailored for Startups or professionals working in AI or related innovative fields. We have invited a group of over 50 AI experts from Germany & China, representing different Government organizations, Entrepreneurs, Investors and Academia. You can mingle and network with AI innovators from global players like Siemens, Intel, Munich Re, BMW or Wacker Chemie.
