Trinational Round Table: Artificial Intelligence

Date: April 25, 2024 at the University of South Bohemia, Budweis

For the German Version please click here.

The Trinational Round Table on artificial intelligence (AI) supports the networking of artificial intelligence experts from Czech, German and Austrian universities and presents the latest research results in the field of machine learning and related technologies. Join us on April 25, 2024 at the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (Budweis) and discuss the different research fields of artificial intelligence and its applications with other scientists. In addition to scientific short presentations, there will be ample time for discussion. The language of the Trinational Round Table is English.

Since 2021, the Trinational Round Table on artificial intelligence has been organised by the Europaregion Donau-Moldau e. V. and the KI Campus Ostbayern. The event is a good opportunity for AI-scientists to network and exchange ideas on their latest research results. In 2021 and 2022 the Trinational Round Table took place online, in 2023 it was organised at the University of Passau as an on-site event. In Passau we could welcome more than 40 scientists. This year, we want to offer a further on-site event, this time in the Czech Republic, at the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (Budweis). On April 25, 2024, AI-scientists from different Czech, German and Austrian universities from the Europaregion Donau-Moldau can meet and get to know each other face to face and discuss their research ideas.
