What is AI Monday?

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.

BCI & Mind Control: AI in Neurotechnology. What’s the status quo?

Although the field of neurotechnology pursues the goal of digitally networking our brain via interfaces, it has received little attention in the European discourse so far. But not only Elon Musk wants to be the next winner of the conquest of human brain. Patents have increased over 500 percent in the last few years. The innovative healing chances of Neurotechnology with AI are impressive. On the other hand, the impacts on mental privacy are ethically questionable. Katrin-Cécile Ziegler clarifies both sides in a comprehensible manner and will illuminate in her keynote the technological status quo.

Connected Autonomous Driving

From DoItYourself RoboCars to real autonomous vehicle

Connected Autonomous Driving is the platform for tech enthusiasts and interested parties to exchange all about autonomous and electric driving and artificial intelligence. We build our own DoItYourself RoboCars (model vehicles 1:10 to 1:5) and equip them with autonomous software. We record driving and image data and train them with the help of fast hardware and artificial intelligence to drive them autonomously. The goal is to analyze autonomous and electric driving from scratch, the technologies behind and their state as well as where the journey might go. We make the whole thing accessible to a broad community through HandsOn trainings and workshops (DIYRoboCar building) in order to build a real autonomous car sooner or later. Alexander & Rainer will bring 2-3 vehicles and present them.

How to Push the Boundaries of Your Business with AI: Lessons Learned Along the Entire Data Journey

In recent years, plenty of companies in Germany and Europe have started to invest in AI in order to remain competitive. However, most AI projects merely make it beyond the proof of concept phase. In this talk, we will present a number of challenges, both technical and managerial, that we have come across in more than 600 AI projects. We will present respective best practices along the entire data journey. We also show how these lead to deployed applications that create real business value. As an outcome, this talk will enable you to rethink your business in order to become a successful AI-driven company that prospers in an ever more competitive environment.

VOICE Design Sprint: “SOS – My AI Assistant does not understand”

Whether in the car, at home or anywhere on the go – using your voice as the only way to interact, is one of the most natural things you can do. On the go, consumers have their hands and especially their eyes occupied. But not just that, during mobility a lot of mental preparation takes place : whether it is getting ready for work, deciding what to cook for dinner, making a to-do list, or setting up appointments.
Using a serious game called “Speech Dating”, we let our audience experience what can go wrong in a conversation when body language and visual stimuli are switched off. We explain how the four principles of a conversation are considered within the VOICE Design Sprint, then determine what the tone of Voice must be and develop a first sentence.
Voice Design Sprint integrates qualitative and quantitative data from user research and serious games, so that the developed application is not only based on AI, but also complemented by actual human interaction. Google defines ‘Voice Design’ as a design principle of interaction design between human and machine, putting humans back in the center of AI.
Let’s start the conversation!
