First EluciDATA Tech Talk: Are advanced AI methods ready to be applied in industry?

You are here

The EluciDATA Community allows its members to network with peers and stay up-to-date with emerging technologies and R&D projects related to data innovation and AI. Within this framework two annual events are organised: an innovation brokerage and a tech talk. The first tech talk will take place on December 3rd and focus on the application of advanced artificial intelligence/machine learning methods in industry.

During this event, you will:

  • Get inspired on how advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning methods (e.g. deep learning, active learning) can be used in an industrial context.
  • Understand the opportunities, challenges and best practices related to the use of these methods through an industrial testimonial by Materialise
