AI & Photonics webinar

2021 09 June

Photonics and artificial intelligence are key enabling technologies which are essential for almost all industries. For example, autonomous cars, industrial automation, virtual reality, medical imaging and border control all rely on photonic and AI technologies.

Fortunately, Finland is strong both in photonics and AI research. What can we achieve, when we bring these technologies together and start innovating? Photonics Finland, the Flagship for Photonics Research and Innovation PREIN and the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence FCAI flagship jointly organise a webinar on June 10, 2021.

Join us to hear inspiring presentations and participate in the discussion!
