About AI2Ynet:

The "AI2Ynet" project and the platform to be developed will lay the foundation for the transfer of AI innovations. The aim is to support small and medium-sized enterprises in the search for and application of suitable AI technologies and components (e.g. algorithms, best practices/white papers, methods of machine learning, data sets, etc.) and to develop new business models.

Speedboat projects:

As part of the AI2Ynet project  short fast AI projects will be finances at an early stage. The results of these "speedboat projects" will be advertised in the AI2Ynet platform. In this way, a critical mass can be generated at an early stage in order to test the platform during its development. 

Workshop goals:

We would like to brainstorm with you, under which basic conditions such speedboat projects can be accomplished successfully. Discuss with us how the application and awarding process could proceed. Together with us, define fair criteria for the awarding of projects and rules for their implementation. We do not start from scratch, but can already draw on positive previous experience. We will present these experiences and materials in the workshop and discuss adaptability with you.

We would like to point out that we will take photographs of the participants during the event for the purpose of public relations work within the framework of the "AI2Ynet" project.
