Upgrade your Natural Intelligence

On May 14, 2018, the fourth Digital Future Science Match took place in Berlin, Germany.

The Digital Future Science Match is an international computer science conference held every spring in Berlin in honour of the invention of the Z3 computer by Konrad Zuse in May 1941.

The Digital Future Science Match has a distinguished record in bringing together many speakers with excellent scientific credentials. This year, up to 55 leading academics were presenting the latest research findings and their visions for a digital future at the conference in keynote speeches and 5-minute short presentations. Every year, about 1,000 delegates from science, industry and politics attend the conference.

This year, tribute was paid to Prof. Dr. Shafi Goldwasse, MIT, a prominent figure who has made a significant mark in shaping the digital era, an honour which includes enrolment as a new member in the “Hall of Fame of the Digital Age”.

During the lunch break of the Digital Future Science Match, an Expert Lunch was held on the topic of "Data Science”. This lunchtime event offers professionals an opportunity to share their knowledge and insights on this very topic with other experts in the field, to swap ideas, discuss future challenges, and establish new business contacts. The Expert Lunch was sponsored by our partner BMW Group.

The Digital Future Science Match 2018 was a joint effort of six renowned scientific institutions - Hasso Plattner Institute, Zuse Institute Berlin, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Berlin Big Data Center, Einstein Center Digital Future, and Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society - as well as Verlag Der Tagesspiegel.
