Key considerations before successfully applying AI

Philipp Glaser


With the rise of AI in enterprise applications also quality engineers must adapt their methods to cope with systems that behave fundamentally different. However the field is emerging, and methodologies have not yet matured. In this session we will gain insights into what the key considerations are before successfully applying AI.

Philipp Glaser

Philipp joined Accenture in 2010 and has since then worked in various roles within software delivery, with focus on the telecommunications industry. He holds a masters’ degree in physics and wrote his thesis at the European Center of Nuclear Research (CERN). His interest in Artificial Intelligence was sparked back in 1993, when he first saw “Terminator 2 – Judgement Day”. This could be reason that led him to drive the topic of Quality Assurance for AI driven Systems within Accenture.

Validierung von VR Health Services

Christine Wyss

Institute for Mental Health

Das Institute for Mental Health setzt Virtual Reality ein, um Menschen zu helfen ihre Ängste loszuwerden. Bei der Frage nach dem Erfolg der digitalen Lösung müssen sowohl die Usability der VR Applikation wie auch die empirische Evidenz der Effektivität berücksichtigt werden. Ich stelle die Herausforderungen dar, denen wir uns bei der Entwicklung einer digitalen Welt zur Förderung der psychischen Gesundheit stellen müssen. Wir laden Sie ein, die Kompatibilität der beiden Ansätze zu diskutieren.


The Institute for Mental Health uses virtual reality to help people get rid of their fears. When it comes to the question of the success of the digital solution, both the usability of the VR application and the empirical evidence of its effectiveness need to be considered. I present the challenge we face in developing a digital world to promote mental health. We invite you to discuss the compatibility of these two approaches.
