Patronage

Frankfurt is the most important financial center of the Eurozone and of considerable importance for our economy. The Hessian state government has the greatest interest in keeping Frankfurt in this position or even enhance it. Therefore, it is essential to actively develop and work on future trends, and currently there is hardly a more important trend than digitalization. There is no doubt that technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, and particularly machine learning, natural language processing and robotics as well as the business models based on them will also fundamentally change the financial industry. It is very important to me that this challenge is recognized and seized as an opportunity. The AI, Big Data, and Network Science Summit makes a crucial contribution to this, as it provides information on innovative developments and serves to network the key players of the financial center of Frankfurt with international experts in Artificial Intelligence. That’s why I gladly accepted the patronage.
