Welcome to the AI Monday chapter in NRW! We are happy to announce that our first AI Monday – powered by KI.NRW & AICommunityOWL – will take place on January 25th 2021.

Following the success of the European-wide AI Monday series, KI.NRW, the central point of contact for artificial intelligence in North Rhine-Westphalia, together with the AICommunityOWL launched a new chapter to bring AI Monday to NRW.

North Rhine-Westphalia is an important European location with many years of expertise in the research and development of artificial intelligence – both on the scientific and corporate level. With AI Monday we aim to connect the AI community in NRW and beyond to discuss the future of AI and its impact on businesses and society.

Due to Corona, forcing us to move to an online format, we have decided to combine all our AI Monday events happening in different cities. This time Team NRW set the focus for their initial event on Quantum Machine Learning

In order to learn independently from large amounts of data, computers need clever algorithms, computing power and ideally the ability to simultaneously consider as many solutions as possible. And this is exactly where it happens, still unnoticed by many: a second AI revolution through the use of Quantum Computing for machine learning.

We look forward to discussing with you the state of the art in research and hardware as well as an outlook on business applications benefitting from Quantum Machine Learning.

We’ll be happy to welcome you to the launch of the AI Monday NRW chapter!
