CITY.AI – The worldwide network visits Germany’s north | rent24 Bremen

The largest artificial intelligence community in the world is called CITY.AI and has an offshoot with BREMEN.AI in the Hanseatic city. BREMEN.AI offers students, researchers, startups, companies, agencies, and media interested parties a platform to exchange about applied artificial intelligence. At the second event at the rent24 Coworking Space in Bremen, all participants brought their expert knowledge, complex questions and practical examples around the topic of robotics and cybersecurity.

Robotics vs Cyber Security

The event was hosted by rent24 members Sebastian Budde and Jonas Fromme, who are CITY.AI Ambassadors as they are avid followers of the network. In more than 40 cities, there are already communities dedicated to artificial intelligence and connected through CITY.AI.

This time it was specifically about the combination of robotics and cyber security. Even today, networked robots can be used and the insightful data they generate used to simplify maintenance. In addition, networking can increase the efficiency of production and, last but not least, improve product quality. However, the more robots are connected, the greater the cybersecurity risk, and this means finding trend-setting solutions.

The international AI scene visits Bremen

The two keynote speakers Marc Fiedler and Jens Stapelfeldt, who come from the international AI scene, have provided exciting and up-to-the-minute input. Marc is the founder of Blackout Technologies and an expert in robotics and artificial intelligence. The story of his company is a success story. He and his team develop true robot personalities for their customers. Pepper is the name of his intelligent prototype, which is now being used throughout Europe.

Jens von Xilinx is a big market expert in Europe as Technical Sales Lead and has studied and analyzed more than 500 AI / ML startups in Europe for his MBA. He gave concrete insights into the technology in his lecture “AI / ML in Embedded Vision & Robotics”. Again, it was digital: Jens was switched from the IFA Berlin.

Clinic session for exchange with students

In the subsequent so-called Clinic Session, a student team was able to present specific questions from their project and take home specific solutions. The networking with popcorn and beer created exciting contacts and ideas. Our conclusion after only two events: The AI scene in Bremen is alive!
