AI & Machine learning edition

The theme of this edition is AI & Machine Learning. The request from large companies to develop themselves is increasing. Also, more and more startups and scaleups integrate AI & Machine Learning in their solutions. Therefore, KPN dedicates this edition to this topic. They want to explore how KPN is working on this topic, and how this creates new possibilities to work together with innovative companies.

Of course, this event is open to every company from every industry. So whether you are a tech company using AI & ML, or operate in another non-technical industry. Everyone is welcome to discuss about this topic, and to speed date with corporates, investors, startups, and scaleups.
