With great pleasure we invite you and your guests,
on Friday, 29 May 2020 at 6:30 p.m. to our
3rd digital club event with the topic:
AI for Hamburg – Hamburg as a lighthouse for Artificial Intelligence in Germany
Hamburg has positioned itself well as a location for AI (Artificial Intelligence). AI.HAMBURG, founded by Smaato founders Petra Vorsteher and Ragnar Kruse, promotes the networking of business, universities, politics and associations in order to encourage the adaptation and use in companies and start-ups in the region and thereby increase competitiveness. All this is done by bringing in international expertise.
Smart and successful companies not only strengthen the metropolitan region, they also have a positive impact on the competitiveness of Germany as a business location. Another focus is training and lifelong education for AI and ML. For this reason, AI.HAMBURG works closely with universities to advance this through degree programs and continuing education.
Supporting a strong AI Ecosystem to make Hamburg a lighthouse for Artificial Intelligence is a motivation that comes from the heart of both founders.
Ragnar Kruse and Ingo Hoffmann, CEO of AI.HAMBURG will explain the strategic importance of AI and how the initiative implements these goals. There will also be insights into exciting application examples.
Ragnar Kruse has over 38 years of experience in the IT and software industry from startup to IPO and exit. He is the founder of AI.HAMBURG, AI.INVEST and Smaato, one of the world’s largest mobile advertising marketplaces. He gained his experience with AI at Smaato, which he developed into an AI Company, and a management buy-in and exit at an AI SpinOff from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Saarbrücken.
Ingo Hoffmann is an experienced AI expert. He is an advisor to the German government on the German AI Strategy. Before his appointment as managing director at AI.HAMBURG, he held senior positions at Applied AI, IBM Watson Health, Cyber Valley, ADI Innovation and SAP.
After the presentation, the speakers will be available to answer your questions – We look forward to seeing you and to an exciting evening!
