International Conference: AI Automotive as Key for Autonomous Driving

28.11. to 29.11.2017 in Munich


The first international conference on artificial intelligence in the automobile was held in Munich, Germany, at the end of November 2017. The two-day event was attended by a very prominent field of 24 speakers, including Professor Amnon Shashua/Intel/Mobileye, Dr. Uwe Franke/Daimler, Dr. Michael Fausten/Robert Bosch, Dr. Urs Müller/NVIDIA, Dr. Bernd Stolle/BMW and many more. In addition to insights into the challenges of the individual companies, there were excellent networking opportunities. The personal contact between participants and speakers was also at the forefront of this network conference. The two-day conference was moderated by Dr. Joachim Becker, an editor of the renowned Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The aim of the conference was the networking of knowledge carriers and participants. Experts from the automotive, IT or semiconductor environment should seek intensive exchange in order to provide insights into the extraordinary development of artificial intelligence in automobiles. The main topics included the interaction of artificial intelligence and computer requirements for autonomous driving, the presentation of the environment and route planning by AI, real-time computing with AI, Depp Learning in the automobile as well as chatbots and digital assistants.

The participants also praised the concept and implementation of the conference. Participants from China and South Korea had registered and highlighted the high quality of the presentations. The organizer, Süddeutscher Verlag Events GmbH, was able to market the conference in China as an exclusive partner with the Munich-based company, Sino-German United AG. Participants from China were supplied with a complete package that included a visa, travel coordination, hotel and admission to the conference as well as personal talks with speakers and a tour of the Bosch plant. Participating was e.g. Ms. Jie Zhao, CEO of Autoroad Beijing Tech, who was very much interest in the personal exhcange of information regarding wave radar and the Lidar technology, both basoc for autonomous driving.

Since there are still many questions and business models to be answered in the area of artificial intelligence, the continuation of the conference is already firmly planned: On 8 and 9 November 2018, Munich will continue to focus on the questions: Can artificial intelligence be a key to success in autonomous driving and what are the benefits of the enormous amounts of data generated by automated driving – how can you develop a successful business model from these factors?
