By combining AI and IoT technology in a gamification app that adds fun for users, we were able to realize an advertising platform for companies.

  • Sustainability and circular economy are very present in all chemical or material companies. What are the technical and business challenges and opportunities? How can you turn these in advantages and growth?

  • Get to know our newest hands-on toolset by means of an inspiring case study. It will help you to assess your portfolio and check which of your products apply for a circular overhaul.

  • The Belgian start-up Aerocircular introduced a whole new circular approach towards end-of-life treatment of passenger aircrafts. Learn more about Aerocircular’s ambition to disrupt the current aircraft dismantling business.

  • In a world in constant mutation, it’s necessary to create mechanisms capable to relieve the human stress in tasks that can be handled by machines. The conversational bots are starting to have an important role in the customer support, where it’s necessary to make these interactions rich, in both content and experience.

  • What makes blockchain unique is the absence of a central authority or a third-party requirement for overseeing transactions. In a blockchain, in order to execute any transaction, which is to be accepted by the rest of the network, the participants of the network need to reach a consensus, which protects the information’s integrity and prevents fraud.

  • How can you enable older users to fully benefit from the latest technological innovations in order to improve the management of their daily lives and stay physically, mentally and socially active? The Vizier project aims to close the digital gap using a signature user interface.

  • Excitement about AI and Machine Learning is tremendous. But how many mainstream products with AI functions do you know? This talk discusses the importance to have a technical strategy for AI projects to avoid pitfalls.

  • Implementing AI into robotics can truly make the world a better place beyond our imagination. In this session we’ll dive into the basics of how AI works and explore the possibilities using this technology combined with robots in real-life scenarios.

  • What happens when humans and robots start to collaborate? Which different fields of science are needed to create a positive robotic future in healthcare, industry and home. BruBotics enables cross-industry innovation by combining research in engineering, life, computer and social sciences on the topic of human centered robotics.

  • A smart city connects future challenges with different types of sensors and infrastructure. We need breakthrough innovations and disruptive technologies to develop new applications and drastically change our future regarding energy transmission, mobility, economy, living, working etc. By sharing experiences you’ll find ideas for your business.
