Not a day goes by without new headlines about the latest developments in AI, and "big" is no longer an adequate word to describe the vast amounts of data that the latest applications are handling.
- But what does the AI revolution mean for my business model?
- How do I need to prepare and organise my data to unlock the full potential of intelligent applications?
- And what are the implications of these technological breakthroughs for our economy and society as a whole?
On September 20th and 21st, we will discuss these pressing questions in real life at #BAS23!
Jonas Andrulis started developing software as a teenager and quickly developed a fascination for mathematics and structures. After studying industrial engineering at the KIT in Karlsruhe and a thesis on Bayesian networks, he worked as a consultant in the field of AI and modeling. active. He successfully founded two AI software companies: The first to plan and optimize of logistics, the second to train and validate human-in-the-loop Deep Learning Algorithms to optimize the interaction between humans and machines. After three years as Engineering Manager for AI research in Apple's Special Projects Group and later Siri, he founded in 2019 again founded Aleph Alpha in Heidelberg, Germany, the third AI startup. Since then, Aleph Alpha has raised a total of 28 mil. Euros raised from some of Europe's top deep tech investors with the goal of establish independent top AI research and run enabling technology for a new kind of AI value creation process.

Rosmarie Steininger is the founder and CEO of CHEMISTREE. She thinks it's great to effect relationships, and to do so with the help of algorithms. After studying business administration with a focus on business informatics, she spent eight years at the BMW Group developing algorithms for logistics systems and managing international projects. During her six years on the management board of the Eberhard von Kuenheim Foundation of BMW AG, she designed and managed charitable projects whose success was based on particularly good relationships among the participants. She brought both facets together in 2017 when she founded CHEMISTREE. CHEMISTREE develops matching and community platforms for its clients, e.g. for mentoring, peer coaching or for events. Excellence and trust in software development are important to Rosmarie Steininger - both in her company and in her role as an expert in the German government's AI strategy and the AI standardization roadmap.
