It has been reported by many industry outlets, that the German market might advance further to set up a licensing system which can get EU approval, however, this has not been the case in the past year. Nevertheless, this/next year the chances of this actually occurring are significantly higher and most of the expert predict that the BREXIT will influence this in a positive way.

We also need to take into consideration that Germany and Austria are currently one of the most profitable markets in Europe, though large companies such as Novomatic and Gauselmann.

We are taking into consideration the facts that by 2020, the DACH gambling industry will cause lots of steer in the European gambling industry with regulations that will make history. 2018 has been a wake-up call for the region and it seems that some of the legislators and regulators are starting to understand why it’s important to have a clear regulation and stop banning an industry which is currently grey or black.

This is one of the reasons, the DACH regional compliance update panel discussion has been added to the agenda of the event.

The first panel discussion of a long series was initiated last year at European Gaming Congress and will continue through 2019.

During the 3rd edition of Prague Gaming Summit, delegates will get the chance to get the information about the DACH region from leading experts of the industry under the guidance and moderation of Dr. Simon Planzer (Partner at PLANZER LAW)

The confirmed speakers of the panel discussion Dr. Raffaela Zillner, LL.M (Secretary General, Austrian Association for Betting and Gambling), Dr. Alexandra Körner (Senior Legal Associate, MME Legal), Dr. Christian Rapani (Attorney at Law at Dr. Christian Rapani), and Dr. Matthias Spitz (Senior Partner, MELCHERS LAW).

Do not miss this exciting opportunity to hear the latest information first hand at Prague Gaming Summit 3 and discuss collaboration possibilities with attending delegates!

Artificial Intelligence has not yet taken over the multiple tasks that are affecting our daily lives. However, these times are slowly approaching and we will wake up one day and AI will affect how we live, work and entertain ourselves.

Voice-powered personal assistants like Siri and Alexa are already used by many and fundamental technologies such as behavioral algorithms, suggestive searches and autonomously-powered self-driving vehicles are also in use today.

The gambling industry has also seen its fair share of contribution to the development of AI and is already used by several operators to target players by behavioral algorithms.

AI is also used in processing Big Data and enhances your offer for the players in both your online and land-based operations. As announced earlier this month, Alex Kornilov, CEO & Founder at BETEGY, is going to have a short presentation during Prague Gaming Summit and explain how they are using AI to help process Big Data.

The idea of implementing AI for early detection of problematic gambling behavior and individualized customer approach has started a couple of years ago and it has evolved into an industry that is driving Responsible Gambling towards a new era.

At the third edition of Prague Gaming Summit, Kim Mouridsen (Professor at Aarhus University, Founder and Managing Director Cercare Medical, Founder at Mindway AI) is going to join the “(Horus Session) Safe Gambling – IT security and AML / KYC” panel discussion and bring the latest findings in the field of using AI and identifying  different types of problematic behavior which allows them to generate targeted and individualized conversation guides that can be used in reaching out to customers either online or by an operator’s help-line staff.

Kim Mouridsen, PhD, is Professor at Aarhus University, Associate Professor and Head of Neuroimaging Methods at the Center for Functionally Integrative Neuroscience and MINDLab. He has previously worked at the University College of London and held faculty positions at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He has a track-record of developing clinically applicable decision support tools and predictive models, and developed the core technology used in Mindway AI as well as Cercare Medical which provides artificial intelligence based decision support for acute patients at hospitals. As an entrepreneur, Kim has co-founded several successful companies within decision support and artificial intelligence.

Kim has published over 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals (H-index: 22) including Nature Medicine, and holds 6 patent applications.
