We all recognize by now that the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) holds not only significant potential for enhancing the efficiency and optimization of business processes but also offers a valuable contribution to environmental protection. Under this banner, the Green AI Hub 2023 recently took place at the BMUV in Berlin. This event brought together numerous experts from SMEs, AI, business, and environmental associations to discuss the possibilities and opportunities of AI in the context of sustainability.
One of the standout features of the Green-AI Hub was the presentation by Dr.-Ing. Marius Dörner and Felix Schulte on the subject of “Possibilities of AI-driven Tool Optimization.” The presenters provided captivating insights into the use of AI algorithms to make tools more efficient, thereby conserving resources. These practical examples impressively illustrated how AI can support sustainable production. The event also provided a forum for a lively panel discussion, where various perspectives and opinions on the topic of Green AI were exchanged. Additionally, the Green-AI Hub for SMEs presented interactive AI demonstrators, allowing participants to experience the capabilities and functionalities of AI up close. These practical applications underscored the potential of AI for a resource-efficient and sustainable economy.
Following the lectures and presentations, there was a get-together, affording all participants the opportunity to engage in discussions. This informal setting facilitated interactions between representatives from different companies and associations, enabling the forging of new connections, exploration of collaborative opportunities, and the continuous expansion of knowledge. The event offered more than just professional exchanges; it also fostered networking within the industry. For those unable to attend in person, the event was recorded and made available online.
