In collaboration with DAIN Studios, digital specialist Ray Sono is bringing the renowned AI networking platform AI Monday® to Munich. Starting July 3, the regular expert meetups will be an important extension of the international event series, which has been bringing together digital experts from established companies, start-ups, research, and politics since 2017. The goal is to fully comprehend the potential of this key technology.
Everyone is talking about AI and what a future with it might look like. Ray Sono and Dain Studios are taking the discussions one step further to give testimonials and practical examples a stage. AI Monday® promotes the constructive handling of this technological revolution and creates a framework that pools the knowledge of the digital community to enable the development of joint solutions. With this event, Ray Sono enforces its strategic role as a driver and shaper of new digital products and services.
AI Monday® is meant to become Munich’s forum for discussions and exchange: short keynote speeches will identify the challenges of a digital future and will demonstrate how AI can positively influence many areas of life.
“With AI Monday®, we want to leave a mark and show that we’re ready for new digital dimensions,” says Sebastian Krüger, CEO of the Ray Sono AG. “We want to mobilise the makers of the industry and bring together all those who are curious about the topic and interested in finding solutions today. With the dynamic development of artificial intelligence, we are currently experiencing an ‘iPhone moment’. It’s understandable that change like that also creates insecurities.”
AI has long been a part of Ray Sono’s day-to-day and many of their projects: from developing a chatbot for Bosch or an adaptive cloud-based solution for optimal use of the energy network for E.ON to creating a self-learning assistance tool for users of bahn.de. At the moment, the digital experts are working on an early-warning system for maintenance and incident management in the steel industry. For this project, Ray Sono is responsible for user research, UXD, co-creation, and business modelling.
As a strategic partner, DAIN Studios complements Ray Sono’s digital portfolio, with its extensive experience in intelligent data and AI strategies. The collaboration has stood the test of many successful innovation projects – and since 2023, the two companies have even been working under the same roof in Munich.
“It’s about demonstrating to companies across all industries the potential of this technology,” says Dirk Hofmann, CEO of DAIN Studios. “With their know-how and digital power, Ray Sono is the perfect partner for us to launch AI Monday® in Bavaria. The event is a wonderful opportunity to bring together knowledge and share it with all present. It’s about exchange and discussion at eye level.”
