What is AiCon?
AiCon2020 is the new festival for AI innovations and will take place for the first time in October 2020. The festival’s first edition, whose motto is “Amazing AI Innovations”, is being held under the auspices of Federal Councillor Guy Parmelin. Featuring high-calibre speakers, AiCon2020 aims to promote the exchange of knowledge, and for the first time ever, a national AI Award will be conferred.
AI has already enabled spectacular innovations to be made in numerous areas of life, such as speech recognition, medical diagnostics and mobility. At AiCon2020, various players in the field will present the results of their work in keynotes, podium discussions and AI product demonstrations and jointly talk about how innovative developments and discoveries can be used for the future benefit of humanity. The event is being organised by the Canton of Schwyz, digitalswitzerland and the AI foundation Mindfire.
AiCon brings together the most important AI players in Switzerland. It pools the forces of this highly important technology of the future and shows where this exciting journey will lead.Guy Parmelin, Federal Councillor, Head of the Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research
