Artificial intelligence to take center stage

Artificial intelligence (AI) is going to be in the spotlight at CEBIT in June of 2018. “AI is certainly one of the most exciting developments of our times, and one that is on the verge of revolutionizing our personal and professional lives. In fact, AI literally has the potential to change the world –  reason enough for it to be featured in a big way at the upcoming CEBIT,” said Oliver Frese, the Deutsche Messe Managing Board member in charge of CEBIT. Opening day is still another nine months off, but many companies, among them IBM, have already signaled that their showcases are going to be placing major emphasis on AI.

The Fraunhofer Society, Europe’s biggest applied research organisation, is gearing up for next year’s CEBIT and will be putting the spotlight on AI, cognitive systems and learning machines.

“The digital transformation is leading us into a hyperconnected world full of innovative business models and products on the one hand, and new security and infrastructure challenges on the other. All of these issues will be addressed at our stand,” said Fraunhofer Society president Dr. Reimund Neugebauer. “However, if we want German to play a leadership role in AI solutions for the long term, then we need more than just inspired technology; we also need more dialogue with the general public, and this is yet another reason we are really looking forward to the upcoming CEBIT. After all: Trade shows are so much more than just a bunch of stands and exhibits; they are places where people come in order to share ideas and visions.”
