Webinar: What is Artificial Intelligence?

Today, artificial-intelligence-driven technologies are changing the world, and there are no ends to the possibilities for businesses and organisations – from automation in text processing and resource management to information augmented reality and intelligent cameras. But what exactly is AI and how do businesses and organisations create value with it?

Join ITU-postdoc Djordje Grbic on a journey through the virtual mind of artificial intelligence and find out how companies and organisations use cutting-edge AI technologies in process optimization, marketing, product development, sales forecasting, and administration.
