On Tuesday, September 14th the Artificial Intelligence (AI) event took place. The focus of the event is on linking Artificial Intelligence to aviation. The NAG organized the event together with the Brabant Development Agency (BOM). It was nice to see our members and other stakeholders/participants live again instead of through teams.
The main aim of the event was to inform, inspire, form consortia, generate ideas and network. Results that you can achieve by realizing more AI applications, strengthening circularity and sustainability.
The meeting started with a welcome of the host of the meeting: Roel Hellemons, CEO Eindhoven Airport.
Jacob Derks, Project Manager of VIA APPIA (Virtual and Augmented reality and Artificial Partners Programme for Industrial Applications) at World Class Maintenance acted as chairman of the day and moderator of the discussion.
