The diSummit goes virtual on request of many members and partners of the AI and Data Science Community in Belgium: Virtual Data Innovation Summit (Virtual DI Summit).

What is on the Virtual DI Summit program in the coming months? 

The theme of the first Virtual DI Summit program 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. Besides, we bring you in contact with global and local market players, as well as the full AI and Data Science Community in Belgium and beyond. is a technology hub focussing on helping Brussels emerge as the ICT Heart of Europe. Actively participating in the Virtual DI Summit as a strategical partner is a powerful way to achieve this. — Claudio Truzzi

DI Virtual Summit 2020 program 

The Virtual DI Summit program starts with a monthly webcast focussing on meaningful, practical AI applications. Once a month, we organize a live-webcast. It begins with an inspiring keynote by an expert in, e.g., Ethics, HealthTech, Industry 4.0, GovTech, Telco- & EnergyTech, and more. That is followed up by in-depth, purposeful, real-life cases from our partners to provide insight into business problems, solutions, and technology. In September, we start with a webcast about AI & Ethics. You can have a look at the full 2020 – 2021 program planning at Besides webcasts, we also plan to create valuable AI content, such as videos, blogs, podcasts, to share with you via social media.
