From Siemens we had Ariane Sutor joining us. She is the head of the research group “Information Integration & Business Intelligence” at Siemens Corporate Technology. She is speaker of the “AI-driven Enterprise” which aims at making company core processes smarter within Siemens. Prior she held several different roles within Siemens research and she worked for the European Institute of Innovation and Technology as leader of the action line “Smart Energy Systems”.

In her talk Ariane gave a brief overview of how AI is applied within Siemens and was also giving more insights into her current research projects on on visual analytics and explainable AI. As creating transparency on AI in technical applications is important in some use cases.
