AI for SMEs Conference

The Introduction to Artificial Intelligence for Small and Medium Enterprises

Experts agree that artificial intelligence will be as disruptive as electricity and the Internet. The question is, what does this mean for you and your small-to-medium enterprise (SME)? What field of applications are relevant for your company? And what must you do to actually implement them?

We’d like to discuss these questions with you and provider answers once again at this year’s AI conference. Leading AI experts and users will be on hand to share their knowledge with you, in addition to points of contact who can support your projects and questions, plus interactive formats where you can learn to begin how to exploit AI’s potential for your company.

12:00 am to 12:30 am   | Dr. Daniel Lemberger, COO, IBO GmbH
Why should a SME occupy itself with AI technologies? What can they bring? How can they be implemented? How do I integrate and manage them? AT IBO we posed these questions and found productive ways to utilize AI technologies without reinventing the wheel.

12:30 pm to 1:00 pm   | Dr. Adrian Engelbrecht, Head of AI, Serviceware SE
It appears that AI’s potential is ubiquitous and that initial ideas have quickly become available. But how can AI be implemented? How can I go about building a suitable team and the required expertise? And what would the path from a prototype and initial productive application, to a scalable solution look like? Dr. Adrian Engelbrecht illustrates the challenges and discusses the lessons learned from the Serviceware Center of Competence for AI & ML that he developed.
