Virtual Data Innovation Summit * Full-Year 2021 Program 



Welcome, we are organizing a Virtual DI Summit program instead of an in-person DI Summit. The theme of the full-year 2021 online edition is AI For Everyone. Our objective is to make AI accessible for everyone by showing practical AI-applications from a business- and a technical point of view. The program starts with a monthly webcast, including real-life AI cases and complemented by, e.g., blogs and podcasts. 


Each monthly webcast starts with an inspiring keynote by an expert in, for example, FinTech, Manufacturing, Telco, Energy, Security, Data4Good, HealthTech, and more. Additionally, partners present a deep-dive into purposeful, real-life AI cases that give you insights into business problems, solutions, and technologies. The recording of every webcast is available for 12 months.

FinTech AI Adoption & Benefits 

Effectively capitalizing on AI’s advantages requires the finance sector to reconsider the interaction between humans and machines. 

You have to understand the interactions internally and externally with, e.g., business partners and customers. It is vital to break through the siloed approach and stop reinventing the wheel when undertaking new initiatives.

To deploy AI tools across your financial organization, it is crucial to involve all business processes and functions.
