The High Tech Stage of the W3+ Rhine Valley was filled to capacity with a lecture on the importance of artificial intelligence on the first day. Speaker Stephan Sigrist from Think Tank W.I.R.E. concluded that the relevance of AI will increase in the future, e.g. for repetitive work.

Sigrist believes that the handling of complexity will be the central challenge in the upcoming transition to a decentralized and networked system of digitization.
