A new series of monthly business talks titled AI Industry Connect was launched in March by SKEL | The Artificial Intelligence Lab at the Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications, NCSR Demokritos.

This initiative aims to bring to the forefront, the possibilities of Artificial Intelligence being put to use by the Industry, in various domains. Through this series of online talks, audiences will have the opportunity to find out about the innovations of each company in their domain and hear real-life use-cases by professionals.

Finally, potential links between the Industry and the scientific community will be highlighted to find out about the needs of the Industry for applicable scientific results.

A Q&A session follows the presentations. The talks are held via Zoom and live-streamed on YouTube.
