Our tour's main focus is to give participants the opportunity to experience the latest trends closely and personally.


Artificial intelligence is changing the principles of business as we know it and shaking the foundations of what it means to be a human being: it will affect every single one of us. AI not only transforms our economies but also the entire human race. Leading companies such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft claim: "At the core we are AI companies.“ Even Elon Musk is investing massively and wants to connect the computer directly to the brain. VCs pump billions into AI, being extensively made use of in medicine, mobility and ICT.

“Artificial intelligence will be at the core of every application”, predicts leading VC Frank Chen. It will touch all industries: IT, medicine with operation-performing robots and mini-computers in the bloodstream, the mobility sector with self-driving cars, trucks and autonomous drones for passengers and logistics, and many more.

The chances are really gigantic but so are the challenges. It is therefore high time we place AI under the magnifying glass and use it positively for the benefit of all.

Date: 7 to 8 September 2017 in Linz, Austria
