AI Ready or NOT – How ready is the industry for AI startups? | September 4 | Berlin

There is a broad range of AI technology available for the industry and more sophisticated solutions are to come out of the startup world – but is the industry prepared?

The gap between the vision of AI and daily execution is large at most corporates, with only a small share of companies having incorporated AI into their processes, and even fewer have extensively incorporated AI into their offerings.

Can AI startups begin to make a change? And if so, what are the problems that could arise and what do we have to look out for?


Change is happening. But when, how and to which extent? If we ignore it, will we become obsolete? Or embrace it and remain relevant…

These amazing panelist will reveal the truth about Status Quo AI:
