Geo.X Early Career Scientists Workshop "AI startups in Geosciences"

16th May 2023

We invite all interested Early Career Scientists of the Geo.X Research Network to join the workshop

Together with the K.I.E.Z. initiative, we are happy to host a workshop on "AI startups in Geosciences". During this workshop, you will develop your own AI-application ideas in teams with the support of K.I.E.Z. experts. We will work out an overview of various application areas and show you how to design an geosciene- & AI-based application with exploitation potential.

Berlin has a lively startup scene and offers a variety of funding possibilities for entrepreneurs. This workshop will give you an overview and provide tools on how to sharpen your own ideas. K.I.E.Z. is an initiative of Berlin’s Universities with the goal to fund and establish successful AI ventures.

The era of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already dawned and offers immense potential, especially in the field of geosciences. Satellite data and other geospatial data open up possibilities for innovative solutions and fields of application – inside and outside of academia.

Let the experts of K.I.E.Z. support you and develop your own concepts for novel and innovative solutions with us in the AI-Geoscience-Startups Workshop. Expand your knowledge of AI technology and learn about funding opportunities for ideas with application potential.
