An international conference next June 2019 explores the challenges and possibilities of combining AI and Computational Sciences with the industry.

The Faculty of Information Technology together with ECCOMAS (European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences) is organizing an international conference entitled “Computational Sciences and Artificial Intelligence in industry (CSAI): the new technologies for solving future societal and economic challenges” on 12–14 June 2019. The conference is held in association with the Industry Interest Group of ECCOMAS, which aims at promoting the interaction between universities and the business sector.

Computational Sciences are already improving performance and productivity in several industrial sectors, while the importance and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are growing at a rapid pace. The impact of AI can provide a major competitive advantage for businesses, and combined with Computational Sciences, they can offer completely new solutions for problem solving.

While the possibilities of these fields are increasing, and at the same time industry is becoming more and more connected, new challenges are also emerging. In the future, both fields will have to be able to create the greatest value for all stakeholders: not only for the industry and users, but for the society as well. For this reason it’s important to explore both the possibilities and challenges that arise from their application to the business sector as well as the complex issues of today’s society.

“The conference offers an interesting cross-section of the situation and know-how of the field both nationally and internationally”, explains Adjunct Professor Tero Tuovinen, one of the chairs of the conference and a member of the executive team of ECCOMAS. “We believe that businesses in particular are interested, because the topics are very concrete for today and can be directly utilized for industry”, he continues.

The conference aims to be a forum for discussion, exchange and networking for participants with varying backgrounds and mutual interests. Over a hundred participants are expected to join worldwide. The plenary speakers of the conference are top experts in their field and come from different parts of the world. In addition, the conference includes minisymposiums and Special Technology Sessions centered around more specific contemporary topics.
