The Discovery Days highlight future trends for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), clarify different AI/ML technologies, applications and use cases, and demonstrates solutions.

Over the next few years, AI/ML will evolve into new applications never seen before in almost every market segment including smart industry, smart city, smart home, automotive, healthcare, agriculture, and aerospace and defense. Challenges must be overcome to create unique AI/ML applications.

Experts with deep insight into AI/ML will speak in the morning with a focus on applications, technologies and solutions. 15 state-of-the-art solutions will be showcased in the afternoon session. The experts will be eager to answer your questions and discuss your projects in detail. 

The AI Discovery day will give answers on different topics, including:

  1. AI/ML future trends, impact and needs for the top 5 market segments
  2. Key technologies with solutions related to image and video processing, predictive analytics, sound analysis and speech processing, and activity analytics
  3. AI/ML applications and use cases, supported by 15 state-of-the-art solution demos

The AI Discovery Days are aimed at decision makers and AI experts who need to understand the future trends for AI/ML in the different market segments, and also want to develop new ideas to aid in their decision making regarding the creation of their own unique AI/ML products. All levels of experience are welcome from people exploring AI/ML possibilities, up to highly-qualified machine learning experts.
