After a longer COVID-19 caused pause the Stuttgart chapter is back with a special virtual “summer edition”. Hosted again by Juri Stobbe from Taival, Daniel Bareiss from Porsche.

Everybody knows Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa. We all have experience Voice interfaces on the phone in some way. Those AI-driven voice interfaces are increasingly disrupting current user interfaces and experiences. With that also significantly changing existing processes. Pavol Sikula and Vivian Richter both shared their solutions and learnings and how they predict this will look like in the future.     

Also very interesting and a super hot topic with Corona: How to manage your supply chain effectively? Improving supply chains and gaining more control is a challenge for many years. But with disruptive technology like AI and disruptive changes in the market like Corona or the demand in more sustainable and circular management, there are new opportunities arising. Marie Vollmar shared how to leverage data and machine learning technology. 

We also did not only have the pleasure to listen to these very exciting use cases, but also did some virtual networking using Yotribe. Choose your conversation partners/groups by approaching others – just like in real life.
