Online Event: Virtual InterSystems AI+ML Summit 2021

According to data from The report of Statista the enormous amount of 2021 zettabytes of data will be generated by the end of 74. Only with the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies can this enormous flood of information be sensibly channeled and converted into value-added business processes.

Therefore, do not miss the virtual InterSystems AI + ML Summit 2021 from January 25 - February 4, 2021, during which you can read under the heading “Discover new perspectives. Actively shape the future.” Find out everything you need to know about the current status of AI and ML. The diverse range of topics ranges from detailed descriptions of the current situation and "hot" AI trends to specific use cases in different industries and interactive workshops. In the first week we focus on AI and ML in healthcare, while in the second week we deal with the topics across industries.
