AI & Data Science Innovation

Our world is no longer short of information or ways to store knowledge. Rather, we need to draw the right conclusions from this in order to be able to make the right decisions and lead our world into a successful, sustainable and liveable future.

In our AI & Data Science programme, we are therefore looking for solutions in the field of data-driven technologies that help companies from a wide range of industries to automate and optimise processes, develop new business models and apply innovative technologies in the field of AI and BI.

Trusted by the best in the industry


Our global AI & Data Science Program focuses on innovative solutions around data driven technologies. Challenge topics can be found in various sub-areas of AI and BI: From tools and solutions for analysing large amounts of data to machine & deep learning or generative models. The goal of the program is to create an exchange between the digital generation, science and business that will enable participants to help shape our path to a sustainable future and create a real impact for our society.
