automatica Talk No. 6

We are further expanding our digital presence with our webinars. This interactive online event series offers additional orientational knowledge and constructive exchange during the time between trade fairs. Top-class experts, suppliers and users will shed light on current issues and trends in robotics and automation from various perspectives.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the pivotal fields shaping the future of our society. The application of AI can enrich our everyday lives and support us in a wide variety of areas. This ‘technology of the future’ stands for progress and innovation. However, being a key trend topic of the digital age, the technology also brings about fierce international competition. The panel of experts will discuss a range of topics such as:

  • AI location Germany: Is the country living up to its claim of being a global leader?
  • Which steps must be taken in order to take charge and shape the future so as not to be left behind by international competitors?
  • What is going well in Germany, what additional efforts should be taken, what hidden risks can be identified?
  • What opportunities and strategies are available for exploiting the scientific and economic potential in the field of AI and robotics?
  • What partnerships should be entered into and what concepts should be developed to advance the topics of AI and robotics?

Artificial intelligence accelerates innovation. In medicine, its promising approaches are applied to improve our ability to diagnose and treat diseases. AI is able to effectively use high-quality health data from a variety of sources. All in the spirit of personalized medicine—so that the right patient receives the right medicine at the right time. The potential of digitalization in medicine is enormous. However, its implementation is not very advanced in Germany. So there's a lot of work yet to be done!
