Berlin, 27.05.2019 - As part of the project "#KI50: Artificial Intelligence in Germany - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow", the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (Society for Computer Science) (GI), a jury of 18 AI experts has selected "Ten most influecning researchers" and "Ten important technologies" from German AI history. The almost seven-hour consultation took place in mid-May 2019 at the Weizenbaum Institute for Networked Society in Berlin.

The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
