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.
