What people
say about AICon


"Hessen already has a diverse and vibrant AI ecosystem, with excellent universities, ambitious start-ups, established companies and committed AI initiatives that are working together to further advance 'AI made in Hessen'. With the establishment of the AI Innovation Lab, which provides powerful AI computing infrastructure, and the founding of the AI Quality & Testing Hub, which is dedicated to the important topic of AI quality, we are sustainably strengthening the Hessian AI ecosystem. Crucial to the success of AI research and application is the exchange of research ideas, research projects and application potential, and this across institutions and borders. I am therefore very pleased that hessian.AI is establishing 'The hessian AICon', a great new format for professional exchange, networking and a start-up fair - with this, hessian.AI is once again showing that it is developing into an important crystallisation point for 'AI made in Hessen' and at the same time developing international appeal."

Minister for Digital Strategy and Development


"Artificial intelligence helps us find better answers to the challenges of our present - in the fight against climate catastrophe, pandemics or inequalities in society. AI will also play an indispensable role in solving future problems that are still unknown today. The hessian.AI conference brings together researchers, start-ups and other bright minds of this groundbreaking technology. The most important basis is the intensive cooperation of our universities: they combine strong basic research with subject-specific and practice-oriented research. This makes hessian.AI a lighthouse AI centre - and the focus of an exciting trade fair."

Minister of Science
