On Wednesday February 23rd, 2022 we were able to welcome around 30 people to our AI community day event at the Center. In the course of the afternoon, various introductions and presentations took place.
AI Innovation Center News
We started by providing a recap of the activities of 2021 and an overview of the residents at the AI Innovation Center.
Sebastiaan Laurijsse introduced the concept for our AI Experience Day Conference. This Conference will take place in June 2022. The program will be designed to help companies embark on the journey of AI adoption.
Participants will have the choice of enrolling in two different tracks according to their experience level. In the Adoption track, participants will join workshops addressing key barriers to AI adoption, and they will work on a plan to tackle their main challenge. Some of the topics are: what’s holding you back from applying AI?; liberating structures; talent acquisition & retention; data availability & quality, and more.
In the Expert track, participants will focus on deep dives into challenges that specific sectors face in scaling AI such as healthcare, mobility and semicon. Discussions around industry approaches, and how to apply AI at scale will also be included.
We’re currently looking for volunteers that would like to join the organizing committee. If you’re interested email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
