    • Virtual

    RSVP Today!

    New York City and Berlin are leading tech hubs in the US and Germany. Both cities already moved closer together since the New York City Economic Development Corporation and Berlin Partner for Business and Technology signed a cooperation agreement in 2018.

    With the current virtual event, we will focus on the impact of artificial intelligence as a global game-changer and as the heart of many innovative technologies serving people, industries, and economies. NYC and Berlin belong to the top 10 AI cities in the world. We want to build a bridge between both AI ecosystems to support companies in growing internationally and finding the right partners. You will gain valuable insights from speakers from Berlin and NYC. The event covers topics like:

    • What are the chances of building AI solutions for global problems? What solutions are there in both cities?
    • What are the challenges of internationalization in AI in current times? How do I implement services beyond borders? How do I find the right partners?

    Tech companies and institutions in AI and related industries from NYC and Berlin, providing help to create a better world, to strengthen industries and economies are warmly welcome to participate. The event is open to industry sectors like mobility, energy, cleantech, healthcare, creative/ media, and finance.

    media:net berlinbrandenburg plans a business delegation on AI to NYC in spring 2021.
