Artificial intelligence (AI) is redefining the frontiers of the space industry and radically transforming the sector. Several applications are emerging such as autonomous decision-making, astronaut medical assistance, anomaly detection, and predictive analytics.
Many actors involved in the space industry are integrating or beginning to show their willingness to progressively integrate AI into their technologies. Space innovation has always been and always will be a promising area and represents a nascent market with rapid growth.
To that end, Euroconsult and Innovitech have chosen to combine their expertise to create a unique event: AIxSPACE. For the first time, this conference will bring together key stakeholders in space and artificial intelligence industries to allow everyone to obtain concrete information on these markets and connect with potential business partners, positioning themselves at the forefront of the sector.
For this first edition, AIxSPACE will be held on January 18, 2021 in Montreal (QC), one of the major global hubs for artificial intelligence.
