International VDI Workshop - Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

Future of AI in Automotive

The VDI Introduction to Artificial Intelligence workshop will give you a comprehensive introduction into the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). You’ll find out how you can tap the full potential of AI applications and in which areas the use of AI is particularly promising, especially when it comes to automotive engineering. You will discuss the opportunities and challenges that come with the application of AI in a variety of practical scenarios together with other workshop participants and the experienced seminar leader with a Silicon Valley background.

AI: the next step of the industrial revolution

AI technologies have developed at breakneck speed over the last several years. Experts expect AI to drive the next industrial revolution forward. During the first industrial revolution, machines partially replaced the human workforce’s manpower. Now it is possible to develop systems with AI that imitate and improve human cognitive abilities. This will lead not just to completely new products and applications, but also to novel business models and ecosystems.

This workshop offers you a broad introduction into the field of AI and presents you with a range of possible application areas as well as relevant practical examples. You’ll learn about various technology, algorithms and the established platforms and systems. The workshop will also focus on specific application examples from automotive engineering in a brainstorming session. All participants are expressly invited to bring examples from their own practice to discuss and analyze.

This workshop is the ideal introduction into AI and the perfect accompaniment to the international VDI Future of AI in Automotive conference  that begins the day after. If you book both events together, you can profit from a reduced package price.
