Interactive sessions
During this hour-long session, our speakers will showcase the exciting possibilities that arise from the application of cutting-edge cartography technologies. They will take you along on a journey that shows how 'simple' old maps can be enhanced, highlighting how the incorporation of relevant information brings historical landscapes, landmarks, and details to the forefront. By comparing these augmented maps with the present-day reality, you will gain a deeper understanding of the historical context and appreciate the changes that have occurred over time. The end result is an interactive map that facilitates user interaction.

Open stage
During the open stage, we welcome you (individuals/startups/organizations) with fresh and innovative AI ideas related to the topics mentioned below to present in a 5-minute pitch.
