In the early 2000 curious minds met regularly on Monday afternoons in Helsinki at so called “Mobile Mondays” to discuss mobile business use cases. In Berlin it was the latest around “location based services” that were shared at the “GEO Mondays“.

In 2017 the founders of Taival re-started the “Monday” tradition in Helsinki – this time with a highly relevant topic of today: Artificial Intelligence. AI Monday was born.

Since autumn 2018 these #aimonday events also take place in Berlin. This is only natural as a Start-up capital and with 54% of all German AI companies the fourth largest global AI hub.

It is also a very logical step to organize such an event in the “Cyber Valley” – the Stuttgart-Tübingen-Karlsruhe region, where AI science and industry come together in a remarkable way. A perfect mix to bring AI in use: a high number of research and science institutions in the field of artificial intelligence, strong support from the state of Baden-Württemberg and of course full business and industry power – especially in Automotive.

We are looking forward to welcome you to one of the next AI Monday Stuttgart events – as guest or speaker.



Four crisp presentations incl. Q&A. Some speaker also demo their AI solutions. Followed by snacks, drinks and networking.


AI curious people, change leaders, businesses with passion for data and disruption.


Share AI-knowledge, exchange and encourage each other on our change journeys.


Details provided after registration.



What do I get?

Inspiration, Knowledge, Contacts, Change Leadership Tips, Ideas, Drinks some Snacks.

SPEAKERS (from last event)

Sophie Schwandt & Dr. rer. nat. Johannes Märkle

Porsche Digital

Industrialization of AI in the context of anomaly detection

We investigate the challenges that arise when transforming an AI based proof of concept (PoC) from an initial ideation phase to an industrial SaaS-solution that is integrated in the daily operations of the automotive development & production. We explain the differences between AI based and traditional software systems and discuss the obstacles and possible solutions when it comes to operating these systems.

Prof. Martin Ruskowski

Chairman of the Board of Technologie-Initiative SmartFactory KL e.V.

Status Quo of Autonomous Production and the role of AI and human interaction

Prof. Ruskowski is Chairman of the Executive Board of Technologie-Initiative SmartFactory KL e.V. – a research institution having once invented the Industry 4.0 concept and defining the future of Industry production. He will talk about “Production Level 4”, a vision describing the aim of digitalization in production. He will also share his perspective on the role of AI and that the exclusion of the human does not seem to be neither sensible nor feasible. Production Level 4 integrates autonomy – people and IT as autonomous elements. These elements communicate with each other and enable maximum production agility.
