Upgrade your Natural Intelligence

On 14 May 2018 the fourth Digital Future Science Match will be held 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 – up to 50 leading academics will be presenting the latest research findings and their visions for a digital future at the conference in keynote speeches and 5-minute short presentations. About 1,000 delegates from science, industry and politics are expected to attend. The conference language is English.

Tribute will also be paid to 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 will be 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 is sponsored by our partner BMW Group. Please apply for participation in the Expert Lunch here

The Digital Future Science Match 2018 is 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.
