Silvia Quarteroni, Senior Manager, Elca Informatics Ltd., is analyzing how more and more companies are using virtual assistants developed for the customer database to effectively communicate with their customers and can offer better customer service. It immerses itself in the world of data analysis and artificial intelligence and shows the latest technologies and possibilities, but also the dangers and pitfalls.

Michel Bernard, Swiss Alliance for Data-Intensive Services (formerly Google), explains how machine learning and artificial intelligence are applied in the most varied sectors and how new services can be developed using data. It shows you successes, ongoing projects and visions for the future.
