Falling Walls Circle Table: Industrial AI or the Challenge to Scale AI in the Physical World

Falling Walls Foundation | Zulfikar Abbany, Michael Bolle, Sami Haddadin, Andrew Ng, Bernhard Schölkopf

LIVE: Setting the Post-Corona-Agenda

Industrial Artifical Intelligence is defined as the utilization of AI for physical products and within the process of their creation. This differentiates Industrial AI from purely software driven use-cases typically associated with hyperscalers.

The transfer of AI from the virtual world to the physical world at scale poses unique challenges in its robustness, safety and security. The collection of training data from physical processes is usually much more expensive and time consuming than in virtual, software-driven settings. Is data driven even the right approach for Industrial AI? How can developers incorporate prior engineering knowledge in their mathematical models to make Industrial AI more efficient and explainable?

These developments pose crucial questions in digital trust. Robustness, safety and security are the basis to trust Industrial AI, but ethical concerns are playing a critical role in designing these systems in the right way.

Join and follow the discussion between three distinguished AI pioneers – Bernhard Schölkopf, Sami Haddadin, Andrew Ng – and Michael Bolle, who is leading Bosch to the forefront of Industrial AI.

Falling Walls Circle Tables will give the spotlight to world-leading scientists, science strategists and policy-makers from academia, business and politics discuss how we can apply science, research and innovation to get the world moving again.

He holds degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, MIT and the University of California, Berkeley.

Bernhard Schölkopf

Max-Planck-Institute for Intelligent System

Bernhard Schölkopf is the director of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. With his foundational research, Bernhard was able to become one of the most important voices in machine learning and specifically the area of causality. His work includes “common sense”-based artificial intelligence, which smartly separates coincidental correlation from actual causation. His research has won him several prestigious awards and he is currently co-heading an AI research lab funded by Amazon. Bernhard’s research is essential in shaping the intelligent systems we will increasingly interact with on a daily basis.
