Roland Philippsen-4
This event is co-located with IJCAI-ECAI 2018 in Stockholm. One of the two
panels focuses on autonomous driving. Early registration deadline: May 31,


The IJCAI 2018 Industry Days is a unique networking event where
entrepreneurs and scientists can discuss the future of AI and its impact on
industry and society. This event is going to be held on July 18 and 19,
2018. Previously a one-day event, this year it is extended to two days due
to the success in previous years and the increased interest from companies
to present their work.

Companies known in the area of AI technologies will give talks about their
use, advancement and strategies with regard to AI. The presentation by
these well known and important companies cover a diverse range of topics.
There will be plenty of opportunities to speak with the presenters and
share thoughts and experiences with other attendees in the breaks between
the talks.

IJCAI 2018 Industry Days will also host two panel sessions involving
researchers, data scientists, and business executives in discussion with
each other and the audience. On the first day, the panel is on AI in
healthcare, as this is an important application area. On the second day, we
focus on Autonomous driving, as one of the today's exemplary and successful
applications of AI.

The Industry Days event will connect the advancement in AI in research labs
to the research in the real world, will discuss the challenges, success
stories and impact of today's technology and will provide insights into the
future society.
