Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already present in many aspects of our daily life and will have a significant impact on our society in the future. RWTH University conducts research on AI methods at the highest international level. At the same time, there is an immense variety of applied research in fields such as logistics, finance, or healthcare.

During this event, scientists from different disciplines will introduce their current research in short and entertaining talks. Knowledge-Based Systems? Neuromorphic Hardware? Process Mining? This event allows you to dive into these and many other research areas at RWTH - for everyone who is curious to learn about the different facets and potentials of AI.
