Computing Continuum and the role of AI as a complementary technology: European market forecast and insights


The AI-SPRINT project and EUCloudEdgeIoT initiative (represented by UNLOCK-CEI Project) are teaming up to host an upcoming webinar on Artificial Intelligence and Computing Continuum. The event is organised under the umbrella of AI-SPRINT market activities and EUCEI Task Force 5 (Markets and Sectors)

The webinar aims to provide valuable insights to all value chain actors involved in the Edge, Cloud, IoT, AI, and Data communities, including research organizations, associations linked to computing continuum technologies, developers and domain experts, governments and policy makers, citizens, and civil society.
