Save The Date - Digicon 2019, 20th-21st November, Palais Lenbach, Munich

Artificial Intelligence – With Cognitive Technologies to Autonomous Systems

This was DIGICON 2019

A full house with 368 participants from over 220 companies, visionary and lively lectures, an exciting race for the 4th Munich Digital Innovation Award and trend-setting ideas on the marketplace for innovations in cocktails and culinary delicacies – that was DIGICON 2019. International experts from business and science presented the participants with the latest trends, developments and results in the field of machine learning. Decision-makers spoke about opportunities and risks, analysts about the methods behind them. On November 20 and 21, 2019, our participants had the opportunity at the Palais Lenbach to exchange ideas on these topics and to view the latest, groundbreaking developments in artificial intelligence from various perspectives.

Artificial Intelligence – With Cognitive Technologies to Autonomous Systems

Science meets Industry

Once again 350 renowned participants from the areas of business, science and politics are expected at the 2019 DIGICON and will hold visionary presentations and discussions. Accompanying the convention will be the pitch battle for the 4th Munich Digital Innovation Award as well as the Marketplace of Innovation, which will give successful start-ups, KMU’s and large companies the opportunity to present groundbreaking innovations.

Artificial Intelligence is penetrating all areas of our society. Cognitive algorithms of deep learning, for example, are able to recognize pneumonia just as well as experienced radiologists. The MIT is already predicting the extinction of radiologists. Although still inconceivable, an autonomous system could then take care of diagnosis and treatment of the patient.

Accompany us on this journey into the future, when cross-functional experts and decision-makers meet at Palais Lenbach, Munich, on November 20 and 21, 2019. Be inspired by approximately 40 experts from industry and science, who will share their valuable knowledge of Artificial Intelligence applications.
