Artificial Intelligence Conference in Karlsruhe

A conference organized by the Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce Inc.

AI undoubtedly holds great economic potential for the whole world and it is poised to unleash the next wave of digital disruption. Real-life benefits are already materializing for a few early-adopting firms, making it more urgent than ever for others to accelerate their digital transformation efforts.

The recent developments in AI offer a great occasion for Canada and Germany to engage in a meaningful conversation on what can be done to fully take advantage of these new opportunities and how to surpass the challenges that come with these developments.

Our CTO and Co-Founder will be part of the panel discussion in Karlsruhe, where experts from Germany and Canada will discuss the newest developments in AI.
