Keynote talk in 2017

Scientific topics

  • Artificial Intelligence challenges for European companies from the mechanical and electrical industry, but also life sciences.
  • Artificial Intelligence and Fintech challenges for the European banking and insurance industry


We have invited a large number of speakers both from within Switzerland as well as abroad, working on AI in Finance and Industry.

One track will focus on financial mathematics and its applications of machine learning, whereas the other one will tackle the implications for industry. In addition, we have a focus session on Fintech-Driven Automation in the Financial Industry.

Session progress in 2017


In September 2017 and 2018, we have had around 200 participants, both from Academia and Industry. The latest installment of the COST conference also saw a large number of international guests and speakers, travelling to Switzerland from destinations such as the UK, Germany, the United States and Bulgaria.

The largest proportion of participants will come from the industry complemented by a significant number of academic researchers. This mirrors our unique approach of connecting the academic world to their respective fields of application, putting new exciting concepts to work in industrial frameworks, where they can open up new opportunities.
