What does the image marketplace EyeEm have in common with the AgTech startup Peat? Under the hood, they are both driven by powerful AI / computer vision technology.

Beyond being a popular buzzword in the startup scene – what does it actually take to run an AI-led business? What are the implications? And what are some tangible use-cases we can learn from?

We’ll be talking to three Berlin-based experts within the vision-AI space to look at how this technology is being applied across various industries right now. Rasmus Rothe, co-Founder of Merantix (a pioneering platform commercializing AI in industry) will guide a conversation answering these questions, and more.

There is no technical knowledge required to attend this talk.
