World Summit AI 2021: global AI community returns to Amsterdam
The World Summit AI 2021 was one of the first major business events held in Amsterdam after restrictions on live events were lifted. Around 1,000 people attended the fifth anniversary event in-person, with thousands more joining online.
The fifth World Summit AI was held in Amsterdam in October 2021, one of the first in-person events held in the city after more than a year of closures due to the pandemic. And, according to event organisers, it was a great success, connecting hundreds of AI experts and entrepreneurs and sparking inspiring conversations.
Hosted in the historic Beurs van Berlage in the centre of Amsterdam on 12-13 October, the summit was limited to 1,000 people, but many more watched a first-class production online.
The two-day line-up around the theme of ‘AI with Impact’, saw leading figures in the field host plenary sessions, curated table talks aiming to find solutions to current challenges, masterclasses and workshops to share knowledge and skills and 1-2-1 meetings powered by an AI matchmaking tool.
