Talents for Future – In Search of Experts for the Age of AI

Science meets Industry

Once again 350 renowned participants from the areas of business, science and politics are expected at the 2020 DIGICON and will hold visionary presentations and discussions. Accompanying the convention will be the pitch battle for the 5th 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. Deep learning algortihms, 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. So why not use these approaches to also facilitate the search for future (AI) experts?

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



As always, DIGICON will have a top-class selection of presenters in the form of innovators, decision-makers and creative directors from politics and business. Below you finde some of the 2019 speakers:

Location – Palais Lenbach

The historical Palais Lenbach is an extremely elegant and tastefully furnished building in the inner city of Munich. Built in the 19th century, it opened its doors exclusively for DIGICON 2020.

The Gobelin Hall on the upper floor offered a stage for exciting presentations and discussions around Artificial Intelligence. Bernheim Hall and the ground floor were dedicated to all-day exclusive catering and the possibility for personal networking. The bar opened in the evening for the Marketplace of Innovation.
