Über den Vortrag

Under the motto “Earth to KI … !? – New ideas for our planet “ Microsoft connected technology experts with thought leaders from the fields of environmental, climate protection and sustainable development and enabled a dialogue on opportunities for a sustainable future. The goal: to build a network of fellow campaigners that will further promote the solution of ecological challenges with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The heart of the communication and CSR campaign was a two-day “Earth lab”, in which scientists, developers, economic experts and social entrepreneurs jointly developed specific application scenarios for AI to protect the earth in a specially developed dialogue and ideation process. The early involvement of influencers and media in the design of the Earth lab and content development as well as continuous storytelling rounded off the campaign.
