Appl.AI SPLASH event 2022

Jaarbeurs, Utrecht • 06 Oct 2022

Artificial Intelligence is changing the way we live, work and travel. It helps us to improve the competitiveness of Dutch industry and to develop innovative solutions that keep us healthy and safe. The big challenge to achieve this, is bringing AI expertise and domain knowledge together. That’s why we want to invite the AI community to share experiences how to apply AI in the best possible way. On the 6th of October we’ll organize the Appl.AI SPLASH Event 2022 together with our partners.

Register for the Appl.AI SPLASH event 2022

If you want to answer one of the following questions, you should definitely meet us at the Appl.AI SPLASH Event 2022. What can AI mean in my sector? Which practical examples are worked on and what lessons can be drawn? What steps are needed to experiment with AI applications? How do I make my AI solutions reliable and trustworthy?

We’ll also look ahead and indicate what we can do together in the coming years. In addition, you can view demo’s during the event and there is of course the opportunity to network.
