World AI Congress for AI Enthusiasts Alte Universität, Graz

Recap AI-KNOW 2020

On February 11th, the first World AI-Congress AI-Know organized by Know-Center together with TU Graz, took place in the Old University in Graz and was a huge success. The event with more than 150 participants, inaugurated by Know-Center CEO Stefanie Lindstaedt, offered AI-enthusiasts the opportunity to exchange ideas with international AI-experts who presented their work, future trends and challenges in Artificial Intelligence with outstanding keynotes.

AI-KNOW is the new edition of the former I-KNOW conference series, which was held in Graz from 2001 to 2017. With the new format, the Know-Center brings the international Al elite to Graz and offers experts and AI enthusiasts the opportunity to network and to get in-depth information about the worldwide AI trends and developments.

“In the course of the ongoing digitalization and the ever-increasing amount of data
associated with it, there is also a need for an
in-depth discussion of the possibilities
and use of artificial intelligence.”

– Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology

AI will gain importance and data science has to become much more collaborative

The topics covered by the keynote speakers ranged from current AI trends, data protection algorithms, the latest big-data analyses to visualisations and information theories. These presentations were accompanied by an exciting poster session on these topics. An overall conclusion from all the exciting lectures and presentations at the AI-Know 2020 was that the future is all about collaboration: With intelligent networking of various research communities and relevant players, the development in the field of artificial intelligence will be made visible quicker and in an effective manner.
