Special Sessions

We had parallel sessions during the day to present the progress in the different fields of work you could decide to join and get a very close look.

Work Streams.

During the afternoon session, the four work streams Data Acquisition, Transfer Learning, Didactics or Automotive Suitability ran in parallel. In each session you could hear four high class talks on the subject and discuss with the experts. Find out more on the Work Stream page.


In a virtual exhibition every partner had their own virtual booth to present und discuss their work in KI Delta Learning. There were twenty partners presenting in parallel poster sessions. We have published all posters here: Virtual Marketplace.
