Artifical intelligence

Appl.AI SPLASH event 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.

Is this event relevant for me?

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.


During the Appl.AI SPLASH Event there will be high level key note speakers with a profound view on AI and we will go deeper into the following AI topics.

AI Systems Engineering & Lifecycle Management


The AI system for the future. At TNO, we work on AI systems that remain reliable and can handle new functions in the future.

Educating AI

27 September 2022

You can read about how AI is educated in Chapter 1. How can we make clear to AI which goals we want to pursue as humans? Andhow can we ensure intelligent systems will always function in service of society?

Innovation with AI

27 September 2022

What does that world look like in concrete terms? Using numerous examples, TNO has created a prognosis for the future in Chapter 2. Regarding construction, for example, in which AI will be used to check the quality, safety, and energy efficiency of buildings before they are actually built. Or healthcare, where robots will partly take over caregivers’ tasks and AI will be able to autonomously develop medicines.

Innovating with innovation AI

27 September 2022

How AI will change research itself is explained in Chapter 3. For example, what role will AI be permitted to play in knowledge sharing? And what will happen when we make machines work with insurmountably large data sets?

David Deutsch on the development and application of AI

27 September 2022

Peter Werkhoven, chief scientific officer at TNO, joins physicist, Oxford professor, and pioneer in the field of quantum computing, David Deutsch, for a virtual discussion. Deutsch set out his vision in 1997 in the book, The Fabric of Reality. Together, they talk about the significance of quantum computing for the development and application of AI. Will AI ever be able to generate ‘explained knowledge’ or learn about ethics from humans?
