VUB, one of CIDIC Major Partners organises a Conference in English on 19th December.
China and the US are battling to become the world’s first AI superpowers. Companies such as Facebook, Google, Amazon and Microsoft are being challenged by the likes of Tencent, Baidu and Alibaba. Europe seems to be absent in this race yet possesses a great research base on AI. In this workshop, the recent AI (r)evolution will be analysed and discussed, looking at the R&D process as well as economic aspects. The emphasis will be on the China-EU perspective. The question will be raised on how universities can position themselves to contribute significantly and positively to this overwhelming AI (r)evolution.
