In 45 minutes the participants of our ANVR travel congress in Portugal got a barrage of examples from applications of artificial intelligence. Jarno's presentation made it clear to us in a very vivid way that the future has already begun. A great presentation! - Frank Oostdam, Director ANVR

Afterwards you'll be completely up-to-date and enriched with a number of surprising insights! - Bas Baalmans, Digital Business Centre - Rijksuniversiteit
