20 German researchers are back from Silicon Valley’s German-American conference on the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the future of work, business and society. They appreciated the chance to exchange thoughts on how to avoid potential abuses of AI and apply it for future-proof and automated solutions.
The MEJOIN Team, as well as the other research networks, discussed their projects and ideas for a sustainable working environment of the future with US experts, including John Hennessy (Chair of Alphabet) and Prof. Hal Varian (Chief Economist at Google) at the Transatlantic Sync Conference in Silicon Valley. Visits and discussions with experts and start-ups in the Silicon Valley Robotics Lab on 30 October and in the Virtual Human Interaction Lab of Stanford University on 31 October rounded off the trip of the delegation of the ten research networks from Germany.
During this delegation trip, the MEJOIN team also visited the Japanese organization JETRO, which helps companies worldwide to invest in Japan or to become established in Japan themselves. Due to the high synergy effects and the identical ideas of the approaches presented in the project, both parties are striving for a more intensive partnership in order to create the best opportunities for the companies involved.
