AI in Belgium is booming, and we are in this journey together with you.

This year, all members of the #AI4Belgium and #datascience community meet at the ULB for a full day event focusing on being human in the world of #AI.

The diSummit 2019 gives you the opportunity to be actively part of the entire ecosystem built around the artificial intelligence initiatives and meetups in Belgium. Around 1000 datascience enthusiasts attend this last big gathering before the summer. You will meet the people that delivered the first AI projects in Belgium, and also have the chance to meet the most inspiring startups. In addition, you will experience that #AI is an essential tool to deliver successful projects.

To inspire you, we invited some key international opinion leaders:

  • Dr Luc Julia led the Apple team who developed SIRI. Now, he is driving the innovation team of Samsung.

  • Dr Stephen Brobst is a former advisor of president Obama on big data issues and was one of America’s Top 5 CTO’s.

During the event, three AI-Awards are announced: best AI-Project, most promising startup, and AI personality of the year. The winners are elected by you and the other participants of the diSummit.

Do you like what you have read? Contact Desiree and check out how your company can get into the spotlight and meet new prospects. We prepared different partnering options for you and your prospects on, and on May 29th we organize a special diSummit partner pre-meeting at the ULB to ensure you get the most out of your partnership.

I’m looking forward to meeting you during your video recording and at the speaker’s dinner on June 13th at DigitYser.

Kind regards,
