Applied AI Lunch Talk - DOLL Living Lab & SyntheticAI Data


Talk 1: Building a City-Scale Local Digital Twin for The Future of Public-Space AI

AI and Smart Cities are hot topics for developers, governments, citizens, and organizations, but how do we realize the concept of an AI-driven Smart City in reality? How do we match the needs of citizens with technology, and ensure that we are developing in a safe, ethical manner and that AI processes are well-described, transparent, and have business value? In this talk, Ben will explain the components, value-creation, challenges, and future of the City Scale AI-Powered Local Digital Twin.

Talk 2: Empowering AI Solutions with Synthetic Data

While computer vision applications are common across industries, training custom AI models can be challenging. The process of training these models is not only costly but also demands substantial data. To address these AI constraints and amplify the value of AI applications, companies should pivot to synthetic data. Gartner predicts that by 2030, most of the data leveraged in AI will be synthetic: artificially generated by rules, statistical models, simulations, or other techniques. Join us for an inspiring session on synthetic data and how it is used across industries
