Zu diesem Event

“Innovation, European cooperation and our partnerships are stronger than a virus” have declared the organisers of the annual French-German Summerschool on AI for Industry. This is why a digital event has been conceived to replace the Summerschool initially planned to take place in France with French and German industry players, prominent researchers and French and German policy makers.

The transformed 2020 virtual French-German Summer-School on AI Engineering, AI for the Good, and Machine Learning will therefore take place digitally on 24 June.

In the morning , participants will have the possibility to watch videos sent by other participants, in the afternoon to take part remotely in a live digital plenary session.
