Specifically designed for the automotive industry, the event engages with new ideas, innovations, upcoming challenges and future opportunities of automotive AI. The conference is a must for those who want to capitalize on the emerging opportunities that AI offers for the automotive sector and offers an interactive platform for open discussions to all relevant stakeholders from an international perspective.
AI accelerating Automotive Development
AI seems to be omnipresent these days, enabling faster and more accessible innovation cycles throughout almost every industry sector. Automotive might be the one sector where the huge investments in AI are not only fundamentally transforming and accelerating development processes but are already today affecting – if not disrupting our daily lives: Experiences in and around the car are reshaped, realizing a connected and safe mobility anytime, anywhere. New use cases, business opportunities and technology concepts open up every day. By means of integrating AI with in-vehicle systems immense quantities of sensor data are easily managed, making sure the huge volumes of data are intelligently distributed and processed. Redefined technology concepts will change system architectures, software platforms, ADAS and principal requirements on the way towards full autonomy.
Artificial Intelligence for All: I am AI – Are You?
To stay on top of these developments and to retain your competitive advantage, you need to engage with the newest developments in the automotive AI market, hear what the most promising new start-ups have to say and exchange ideas with key industry stakeholders. The VDI Future of AI in Automotive conference is the ideal opportunity to get an update on how AI is transforming the automotive sector, its opportunities for future applications and the challenges to come.
