One of the first to test and develop their AI-powered technology at CitCom.ai’s facilities is a Belgian company with a history that pre-dates both the personal computer and the television. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, Macq has plenty of experience in adopting new technologies and is now investing in AI across its product range, hoping CitCom.ai can offer proof of a new concept for safer roads.

The potential for products based on artificial intelligence in the German market is pronounced. There are several particularly exciting opportunities for AI solutions within smart, sustainable cities and societies. The development is influenced by Germans' general unease with data sharing. This was one of the key points that a Danish delegation from TEF DK took away from a visit to Berlin. - And Danish Chamber of Commerce (Dansk Erhverv) emphasizes the importance of the TEF collaboration to strengthen Danish companies' global position.
