Successful “Meet up” on “Artificial Intelligence” at the University of Liechtenstein

The “Meet up” on “Advanced Artificial Intelligence” on June 4th at the University of Liechtenstein had exceeded expectations, with engaging presentations, lively discussions and a networking event afterwards.

“Meet up’s” are a usual style of engagement at the University, to make innovations available to a wide audience. “This event was a ‘great success’. We were happy about the big interest of many company representatives and will cooperate on concrete projects in the future”, says Prof. Dr. Jan vom Brocke, Head of the Institute of Information Systems. A crowded room followed the advancements of Professor vom Brocke, Hilti Chair of Business Process Management, Dr. Johannes Schneider, Assistant Professor at the Institute of Information Systems, and Mounir Shita, CEO of Kimera Systems. A lively, engaged discussion followed the presentations, in which students, company representatives and interested participants of the region were discussing use cases, new economical models and social consequences of “Advanced Artificial Intelligence”.

New economical models
With the ongoing automation of products and services, new socio-economic aspects will occur. “We hope that this will not only be of interest for companies, but also for governments in the mid or long term”, says Mounir Shita. “Rather than providing data on a daily basis, which we produce with our devices, data sharing with third parties should also be paid for. This is a new economical model.” The Institute of Information Systems examines the opportunities of General Artificial Intelligence in the Liechtenstein region. “First of all, it is important for us to work on concrete projects, to find out what is really possible with ‘Artificial General Intelligence’ (AGI)”, vom Brocke says. AGI is an ‘Advanced Artificial Intelligence’ that can successfully perform any intellectual task, similar to the human brain.
