Artificial Intelligence and the Latest Trends

Artificial Intelligence and the Latest Trends

The era of artificial intelligence has already begun

Even today, artificial intelligence is making many things possible that were unthinkable just a short while ago. But where does the potential lie in technology? Where is machine learning already being used? And what doors will deep learning open in the near future?
Intel invited decision makers to the hottest and most modern venues in Munich, Paris, London, and Moscow, as part of the AI Summit Series, to discuss these questions and learn more about Intel's AI strategy.
Following the one-day summit, participants used this extraordinary opportunity to discuss AI trends and to network and exchange information with presenters and attending IT experts in a relaxed atmosphere.
With a perfectly set stage, video walls, and projected images, Stark! Marketing, as the partner for organizational issues, ensured that the event series was a complete success.

Futurium—strategically shaping the future at CeBIT with creativity

The Futurium is the emerging center for shaping the future in the government district of Berlin: an exhibition with vibrant scenarios, an interactive laboratory, and an event forum as a place for dialog.

At CeBIT 2017 in Hanover, STARK! Marketing organized Futurium's first successful trade show exhibition with an exceptional booth that presented visitors with exciting exhibits and interesting presentations and workshops.

The booth's must-see was a multimedia wish keeper—an app that linked visitors' wishes for the future in one neural network.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise at the ISC 2017

Same. Same. But different. The same customer, the same trade show. But a new concept.

As in 2015 and 2016, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) turned to STARK! Marketing once again to organize its trade show exhibition at the 2017 International Supercomputing Conference. And once again this year we were able to shine the spotlight on HPE's booth.

In line with the motto, "Accelerating HPC Solutions for Today and Tomorrow", the booth caught the attention of many visitors with its supercomputer, LED video wall, and an action-packed in-booth theater.

One particular highlight of HPE's exhibit was the champagne bar. After HPE's latest announcement on Monday evening, guests were invited to toast to the future of HPC and AI systems.

Tuesday evening was a blast to the past as visitors spent the evening at the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History for a networking event. HPC experts from around the world exchanged information and discussed HPC solutions and trends against a unique backdrop of dinosaurs from millions of years ago.

2017 Girls'Day

2017 Girls'Day

STARK!-strong girls visit Angela Merkel

For the seventh consecutive time, STARK! set the stage for Intel at the kick-off event of the nationwide Girls'Day at the Federal Chancellery.

Girls'Day has become an important day for curious young women to fast forward a few years and think about their careers. Intel's goal is to spark their enthusiasm for professions that are typically considered "male" and present modern STEM subjects in a fascinatingly vivid way.

The highlight of the kick-off event at the Federal Chancellery was the futuristic-looking RSP17 Onyx, built by female students from the Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences. At Girls'Day, young women could not only test the racing car live and develop a few of their own components in the construction area, but they could also ask questions about a day in the life of an engineer or computer scientist and connect with Intel representatives for future job opportunities.
