Workshop F

Engineering in the age of artificial intelligence – more time for creativity?

Christian Ziach & Gregor Haidl, HTGF Investment Managers
Technical software products and new production processes have made life easier for engineers and have become indispensable in their professional lives. But with the advent of artificial intelligence and algorithms for machine learning, the question arises as to how the task and role distribution between man and machine will be in the future, and what opportunities this offers for companies. During the workshop we want to approach this issue along the product lifecycle (development, production, use and maintenance) and with the help of selected HTGF portfolio companies.
