Fraunhofer Alumni Summit 2019

On 20 November 2019 the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft came together in Berlin to celebrate their annual Summit and networking event. Consistent with the focus topic on Artificial Intelligence the CINIQ Center and the 3IT hosted the evening program of the Summit.

Following a guided tour through the HHI premises, Dr. Roland Busch (Siemens) and our institute director Prof. Dr. Thomas Wiegand welcomed the guests in our rooms and started the evening with exciting presentations on Machine Learning and state-of-the-art research in various related projects.

An interesting panel discussion between Prof. Ina Schieferdecker (Head of Dept. BMBF), Prof. Sami Haddadin (Director of Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence), Jeremie Lecomte (Senior Technical Program Manager for Alexa, Amazon) and Prof. Dr. Michael Waidner (Institute director Fraunhofer SIT) completed the official part of the event.

Many Alumnis used the relaxed atmosphere during the dinner to network and chat about past and future projects.
