Companies heavily invest into and build up projects around data and artificial intelligence/ machine learning/ deep learning. In this interactive session, CERN Knowledge Transfer (KT) would like to provide first-hand insights from industry and discuss examples of the kind of activities companies pursue to create value from AI. 

We will address questions such as:  

• What are the main differences between AI in science and AI in business?
• What do companies promise themselves by investing into data, analytics & AI?
• How do companies approach AI? What are example AI use cases and projects they tackle?


The event will be structured in 45’ presentation followed by 15’ Q&A. Interactive discussion during the presentation is strongly encouraged.
