With Susanne Dehmel, MD of Law and Security at Bitkom, the Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media, which brings together more than 2,600 international companies, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups specializing in the digital economy, Amr Talaat discussed cooperation in the introduction of AI in various sectors, such as healthcare, agriculture and manufacturing, as well as technology transfer through various programs and services provided by Bitkom member companies.
