AI in Blockchain, Quality Assurance, and the Medical Industry

Artificial intelligence (AI) has improved by leaps and bounds to a point where AI based applications are widespread across all industries such as technology, automotive, health, banking, marketing, and entertainment while simultaneously providing tremendous opportunities for businesses to increase operational efficiencies, improve quality assurance and reduce costs, among countless other possible uses.

For the first time in Munich, the Disrupt Network asked EIGHTYDOTS to be a partner for this event.

The speakers were:

Dr. Tassilo Christ, Senior Manager, d-fine GmbH

After graduating in physics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and finishing his PhD at the Technical University of Munich Tassilo joined the financial engineering group at d-fine, a Frankfurt based quantitative consulting firm. During the financial crisis and its aftermath he developed and validated models for the pricing of complex financial derivatives and advised banks and supervisory authorities on questions of risk management, financial accounting and capital measurement.

Being passionate about machine learning since his university days Tassilo also delivered projects to clients from the industrial sector, which greatly benefited from the mathematical mindset and the strong data analytics background of the d-fine consultants. Tassilo and his team successfully applied artificial intelligence in particular in complex image recognition projects, one of which was the topic of his presentation.

Stay tuned for the next data science and AI meetups with Disrupt Network in the future!
