Transformation into the AI Era: Digitization and Intelligent Systems

Artificial intelligence methods offer enormous potential to lead industrial production into a new age. The opportunities and possibilities are numerous and range from making production more flexible, increasing resource and energy efficiency, to developing new business models. Take your company into a new era with the help of artificial intelligence (AI).

By participating in the AI Summer School, you will learn all about corresponding opportunities and risks and which skills and mindsets are necessary to successfully implement such a transformation.

The AI Summer School is organized by fortiss together with Bayern Innovativ, Bayerische Gesellschaft für Innovation und Wissenstransfer mbH and the KI-Produktionsnetzwerk Augsburg.
