IMPACT 2019 & House Warming

Artificial Intelligence – certainly one of the most hyped topics of our time – has been the motto of this year´s IMPACT.
Bestseller author Karl Olsberg´s highly anticipated keynote on “Artificial Intelligence and Human Stupidity” opened the door for a lively discussion shedding light on myth and reality.

As a further point of the program SBA´s researchers introduced ongoing projects and provided insights into future questions and challenges. While mingling guests enjoyed the chance to get a closer look at posters and find out more about current research in a direct discussion.

As the evening progressed conversations moved to the terrace. Warm weather allowed 100 guests to enjoy the end of the day in a pleasant atmosphere.
