For the third time, the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Physics (IAMP) and the Institute for Data Analysis and Process Design (IDP) organized the European COST Conference on Mathematics for Industry in Switzerland. The conference, which aims to bring together academics, researchers, developers, students and practitioners, focused on mathematics for business applications in 2018 and more specifically on the field of Artificial Intelligence. Under the title "Big Data Meets weather: how real-time access to weather data enables rapid development of business applications", it was shown how the real-time access to the Meteomatics API enables the integration of weather data in business applications and thus the training of AI models.
