SZ Digitalgipfel

10. April 2024
in Munich and digital

Cars still can’t fly, but artificial intelligence can give companies wings – and there’s plenty else to talk about. What’s next for the digitalized world? Why is Germany finding it so difficult to keep up digitally? And what impact will artificial intelligence have on our lives?

At the SZ Digitalgipfel in spring 2024 under the motto “AI: The future is here – now what?”, we would like to work with you and leading experts to find answers to these questions and solutions to the challenges of the digital world.
